Many cartographers like to take inventory of their personal cartography near the year end. I figured it would be a fun experiment to map my own personal journeys and travels of 2012 on top of my foursquare check-ins.
I had to reconstruct my travels from my Google Calendar and Foursquare check-ins after losing all my GPX data when my Garmin was stolen out of my car. I think this made the exercise that much more interesting and challenging.
Being a community health worker, I was driving all over the city and metro area every day. Data shows that I typically use I-96 and usually check-in at locations in Midtown. Sadly, my job doesn’t let me walk or bike very often. I am resolved to ride my bike more in Detroit during 2013.
