Occupy Wall Street movement via Twitter

Following on from our work on harvesting ambient geospatial information (AGI) from social media feeds we have started to explore the Occupy Wall Street movement. The movie below shows just one part of this work, specifically the movement of the protesters in New York during the Action Day (November 17) from Wall Street to Brooklyn Bridge. The red dots denote locations of the tweets. Selected tweets are displayed at the bottom of the screen. Active tweets are marked with a white star.
