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

Here’s the link to a huge version of this map so you can read all the text.

WOOOOOO no pants!

This is pretty snazzy. Couple of highlights:

– Most potatoes produced: Idaho (go figure)
– Most reported Bigfoot sightings: Washington
– Idaho and Montana shrink to almost nothing when you select to view the states sized by the number of African American individuals living in the state.

This guy is my new hero

Most badass cover of Maps ever.

Two interesting maps for you to ponder. Soda and religion, what a combination!

That is all.


(Red is Coke, yellow is soda, and blue is pop, by the way)
