This is a tiny bit of Microsoft researcher Andrés Monroy-Hernández's map of Seattle, the Capitol Hill bit. Seemingly based on that Ork poster that's hanging in your living room right now, it's labeled by the most commonly tweeted words in each neighborhood. You can read all about the methodology in this Geekwire post.
Monroy-Hernández tells Geekwire he's interested in "data-driven art" and that as a new Seattle transplant, he has "both empty walls and an interest in art that represents my new city."
Go find where you live! What word is on your house? Try and figure out where the weird words come from. For example, "salt" is the most prominent word in North Seattle, but then you realize it must be about snowy roads, right? And because it's all based on volume of tweets, neighborhoods that had low volumes have a lot more words from police tweets about their hood. "So the loudest is the most visible, which is part of the provocation," says Monroy-Hernández (in a tweet, of course).
