With the riots that have been happing in Baltimore, I thought it would be interesting to use Plus One social’s radius social search. I put in the lat/long of Baltimore with a 10 mile radius search and I’m totally amazed at the results! Just look at all that location data on tweets above.
I took the data into Excel’s Power Map feature so you could see the heat blobs. Power Map represents the hot areas very well.
Then I took it over to Tableau so you could see the locations of the tweets better. Not as colorful as PlusOneSocial.com or Power Map, but it still gets the point across.
I did all this in under 15 minutes using Plus One and all these self-serve BI tools. Try it yourself.
