One Week of Foursquare Checkins [visualization]

Foursquare has reached 1 billion check-ins !! Not bad for a ‘2 year-young’ company that has some significant competition in the geo-location space.

To mark the milestone, the team at Foursquare has put together an animated data visualization plotting a week’s worth of check-ins across a map of the world.

Across the top of the map, you can see how the check-ins break down by category and region. The animation shows people checking into restaurants, entertainment venues, outdoor spots and more all across the globe.

East Coast, Europe and Asia seem to have the higher concentration of active users. Come on West Coast let’s get to checking in!! That being said you can follow me on Foursquare at user jameshicks.
