A Week on Foursquare

The WSJ has a really cool time-lapse visualization of Foursquare checkins for New York and San Francisco. You have to go to the full site for all the fantastic data it displays.

Coffee Bar

It includes the number of checkins per hour, the heat map (like above), the top 80 categories by checkin, the number of venues and the checkins at those venues, gender breakdown, top places to go, and the total number of checkins for the time studied – all compared against the two cities.

I’m drooling over all this data. My mind is going crazy with all the social and empirical data that could be determined by all this.
