Geosprocket, a geospatial consulting firm, needed to create a map of Twitter messages sent during Hurricane Irene. After collecting real-time Twitter messages positioned around the storm, Geosprocket worked with MetaLayer, Inc. and D8Group to create an interactive map of tweets. As a result of this collaboration, Geosprocket was able to create a visual map of real-time sentiment, ranked from very negative to strongly positive, during Hurricane Irene.
