luiy's insight:

The big data visualization of the week comes to us from Jo-fai Chow, a research engineer and data geek from the UK. He uses the ShinyApps alpha release version to produce this delightful web app. ShinyApps.io is a new server which is currently in alpha testing to host Shiny applications based on R. You can play with the app HERE by just specifying a location like “Oxford” (only crime data from England, Wales & Northern Ireland is available at this time), and the number of months. The crime map is then rendered as shown below. You can fine tune the plot with a number of other parameters. For detailed usage information, check out Jo-fai’s blog post “Introducing CrimeMap – A Web App Powered by ShinyApps!”

luiy's insight:

It’s the year 2054, where “PreCrime,” a specialized police department, apprehends criminals based on foreknowledge provided by three psychics called “precogs.”

That’s the premise of the Minority Report film. Now University of Twente (UT) mathematics student Marijn ten Thij* has developeda mathematical model that he says could achieve a similar result (but not limited to crimes) by analyzing tweets — perhaps similar to what the NSA is already doing.
