Mapping the Baltimore Riots with @PlusOneSocial. Instance insights through social media data.


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 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.

Enjoy, Patrick
