Examples of Visualizing Data using various media

Attached are two links to relevant projects for those dealing with social media and GIS in general. The first website is an explanation of two projects from the Columbia GSAPP Spatial Information Design Lab. The first is a map showing all the foursquare check-ins during a one week span in New York City. Within this they highlight another project about the incarceration rate amongst public housing blocks in NYC. Both are not only relevant to Chicago but also show great visual ways of representing the data extracted

The second is the SIDL lab website. They have other projects on their website as well and it is a great example of visualizing the data collections
