A visual exploration of Foursquare checkins

Interesting project by Foursquare, showcasing the last three months of checkins, using their big data to create a mashup on top of a Mapbox map.

Foursquare, 3 months of checkins


Of the SoLoMo team, Location hasn’t really gone mainstream unlike Social and Mobile. Privacy concerns not withstanding, when you get aggregate data like this, i start to wonder if we could use this location data for urban planning. Of course brands are only interested on traffic and consumption patterns, but there’s still a lot to explore once we get to learn on how to live in public and share our data for good purposes.
