City Memory Visualization update (2)

The visualization continues to take shape (see these earlier posts for context). We are now parsing live data from Twitter and image tiles from the Google Maps API for the surface mesh. The user interface remains the point of focus at this point in time, though we are beginning to look for data parsing solutions to help construct the semantic pathways between status updates. Below are a few images of the latest progress.

    Hi!
    Great job – I’m really interested in your project. I’m actually writing my thesis and I focused on visualizations about the real-time city. This post is just to let you know that:
    1 – there is an error when clicking on you 1st image: “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘)’, expecting ‘,’ or ‘;’ in /home/cschmidt/webapps/formfollowsbehavior/wp-content/themes/formfollowsbehavior/attachment.php on line 33″
    2 – If you don’t mind, I would be very happy to have your (you and your teams project) featured on my blog – the blog supports my thesis and I intend to update it after I finish it. (http://flowingcity.com/)
    Also if you know about this kind of projects, please drop me a line – I’d love to have them featured on my blog.
    best regards !
    Margarida
