I took the Starbuck locations and mapped them out using Tableau. Tableau does a great job mapping them out quickly, I just wish they had other color maps. This gray scale is killing me… If you want the file, just message me and I’ll send it to you.
Here is New York
There is so much bad news about Yelp and their business model. I believe a lot of people will just TWEET their experiences good and bad. So I turned to Plus One social to harvest people tweeting about steaks in the New York area using a radius search.
Why twitter? Because it gives people instant satisfaction when it comes to posting about how much they like or dislike something. Much easier than logging into Yelp and posting a review. Why waste the time right? I found this cluster of posts right here.
When I drill down, that is Tre Dici Steak house. A few very positive comments about their food and atmosphere. This took all of 1 minute to do.
This is WHY cooler and most trusting way of finding your best steak house. Give it a shot. Download Plus One and try it for yourself!
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.

Over at Geekwire, Taylor did an article on where all the startup locations are for entrepreneurs. I’ve been wondering about co-locating but kind of disappointed that there are only a couple on the eastside.
I guess on the eastside most people are comfortable working at Microsoft to take on something risky.
This is important stuff and you just won’t believe all the work that went into the maps on the following links. Click it if you love the Walking Dead!
