Santa sightings

It seems appropriate that we leave you with something festive and fun before we take a break here at Cranfield University for Christmas and New Year. We’ve pooled together our mapping and data processing expertise and are proud to present you with The Unofficial Santa Sightings Map, 2012. The map takes its data from Twitter in the form of geotagged tweets posted over the past few days. It would appear Santa’s been doing a fair bit of travelling this week, with a surprising number of sightings as far north as the Highlands of Scotland.

A very merry Christmas and happy New Year to you all, see you in 2013.
