The intent of this project is to analyze tweets posted throughout Pittsburgh to gain a sense of where Pittsburgh Steelers fans are most pronounced. In theory, the entire city loves the Steelers, but it is my assumption that the tweets will reveal areas of the city where fans aren’t as vocal in their expression of their love for the team. Via heat mapping of tweets and animated aggregation of the data during game day, we will be able to utilize the data of tweets to better interpolation where and when fans are most passionate about the home team.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
