The social life of cities is complex. Where once the networks which operated within cities could be understood - to an extent - through their physical infrastructure, in the internet age much of the network that supports city life is hidden, existing only through intangible data.
Invisible Cities is an app which makes this network tangible, using geocoded data from Twitter and Instagram to morph the landscape, displaying where the most activity is occurring. These hills of activity can then be linked by lines representing keywords, showing underlying affinities between different geographical areas.
The app is newly compatible with the Leap Motion Controller, and is available for free from Airspace, the Leap Motion Marketplace. You can watch the app in action above, and see screenshots below.
