about sacramento hashtag project

A community project we created with Code for Sacramento. The Sacramento Hashtag Project aims to connect people in nearby neighborhoods through Twitter to encourage local participation and awareness. This project functions by mapping neighborhoods to an interactive color coded map to show and filter tweets based on location and density of tweets. Currently we are tracking the #DowntownSac, #MidtownSac, #EastSac and #WestSac neighborhoods but have plans to encompass others in the future. Let us know what hashtags you are using or if you want support for your neighborhood!

Technologies: Twitter API, Google Maps API, BackboneJS, NodeJS
