Visualizing the conversation on #SmartCities in Twitter (by countries)
This visualization shows geo-referenced tweets by country, based on the #SmartCities hashtag. 1380 tweets were collected from distinct users. Then, a geocoded analysis was done using R. Countries with the highest number of tweets have a dark green color. The color gradation goes until the pale green (countries with lowest number of tweets). The map shows the results by country. The original visualization is in Spanish.
It is interesting to see not only the topic conversation distribution by countries, but also the internationalization of the English word "SmartCities", even if the country is not an English-speaking country (see the case of Spain).
