Word Mapper


This is pretty cool!

It lets you type in a word (I think it only has the most frequently used 100,000 words, though?) and will map its frequency of use in tweets (either by county or just by hotspots) across the continental US.

Here are some fun ones.

The differing distributions of “geek”, “dork”, and “nerd”:

geek

dork

nerd

 

Canada”, “Mexico”, and “America” (I would have used “United States”, but it just takes words, not phrases):

canada

mexico

america

 

 

North” and “south” are nicely clustered around the states with those words in their names:

north

south

 

 

Idaho!

idaho
