more than maps.

Wednesday 28 March 2012

I've spotted some pretty interesting maps lately but these geographical studies by Eric Fisher may just take the cake. Eric has created these studies using information from Twitter feeds, location tagged photos and Census data. I'm always fascinated when information that seems so rational can produce such beautiful, evocative imagery.
