Sitegeist uses publicly available data to create infographics for your surroundings [#bigdata]

Sitegeist Serves Up All Your Neighborhood’s Not-So-Secret Secrets
"Based on your current location, or a different location of your choosing, Sitegeist will scrub a mountain of publicly available data, chew it up for you, and spit easy-to-read infographics right into your mouth like a loving mama bird. So far the app has five different categories—People, Weather, Fun, History, and Housing—which contain tidbits like average and record temperatures, average rent per month, nearby places with lots and lots of Foursquare check-ins, and even the total political contributions by area people, split by party. And this is only the beginning. So far the app scrubs sources like Census information, Yelp, and Foursquare, but the developers intend to fold in more and more information as good stuff becomes publicly available and accessible. "
