Live map mash-ups from the user generated matrix

Posted in: Web Apps

Watch the FlickrVision map as it moves across the globe, pinpointing the locations of users who have just added a photo to Flickr - on average this happens these days around 4000 times per minute - so I guess we are getting a compendium.

Another engaging mashup is WikipediaVision which combines Google Maps and live data on updates from the English Wikipedia to display the geolocation of people editing articles in near real-time.

Twittervision is another hypnotic glimpse into the lives of people around the world. It’s a complete waste of time watching mostly casual conversations but can be intersting to watch when you start to note the patterns - one can watch the reactions to global news events unfolding for example.
