Nathan Phillips's curator insight, March 2, 2013 10:22 AM

Again, from the amazing UCL spatial analysis team (@edthink, @spatialanalysis, @oobr) and thanks to the real time Twitter data from @trendsmap comes this map of linguistic diversity, as represented by tweets in New York City over a three year period (January 2010 to February 2013). This is a different and new way to think about ethnic and racial diversity. How does the Twitter distribution compare to Census data? What do linguistically diverse tweets represent? It would be interesting to map conversations and connections over social media. In other words, who was on the other end of these tweets?

 

What's remarkable here is both the availability to display something like this thanks to publicly available and large data sets but also the new questions that arrise in thinking about what these data (and the data display) mean for learning across space and time.
