Social Media maps social use of space
As a child I used to go to Devil Lake, a park in central Wisconsin. Devil lake is in some vast country side, bordering on wilderness, lovely in itself but the impact of the lake and the cliff formations created during the last Ice Age has produced a lovely park around the lake. Year after year we would walk the steps up to get some amazing views including rocks balanced on top of each other.
This map of the area, showing Flickr, shows pretty clearly the path, including a spot where it goes away from the cliff edge, and the roads in to the park. Interesting that in a remote area Flickr can tell us, when read on a map, that a lovely place exists.
This was created with happen.in Search Baraboo Wisconsin and just go a bit south.
