Our friends at UCL’s Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis never cease to amaze us. Today’s dose of digital craftsmanship shows the peaks and troughs of London’s Twitter traffic in the style of a contoured map.
In a cute touch, areas of the capital are renamed to fit this new topological visualisation. At London’s heart is Soho Mountain, the towering peak of the local Twittersphere. We see the foothills of Peckham Crag, Gherkin Point, Battersea Hill and Hackney Downs Hill. The Lea Valley remains a valley, while the Wembley Plains look ripe for fertile growth.
With thanks to Andy Hudson-Smith for the heads-up.
