Smartphone Visualizations Of Neighborhood Social Data
The Sitegeist app displays statistics, like political affiliation and average age, in easy-to-read infographics.
Finally, Census information you can use.
The Sunlight Foundation has created the new Sitegeist App to make information and factoids about your neighborhood, or any neighborhood for that matter, more accessible to the public.
Using U.S. Census data, Yelp reviews, Foursquare check-ins, weather information, and any other forms of publicly accessible information, the Sitegeist app compiles and simplifies easy-to-read infographics about your geographic location. This allows users to find out things like political contributions, average age, record temperatures, and the most popular Foursquare check-ins in your neighborhood, among other things.
