Twitter language communities in London

This tool was created by Eric Fisher and Ed Manley. The main languages detected were: English, Spanish, French, Turkish, Arabic, Portuguese, German, Italian, Malay and Russian. The corpus was of 3.3 million of tweets located in the London area (found out through GPS) during the summer. The different colors in the graph come from the detection of Google’s translation tools.
