The attached PDF map of occupy locations is the result of a longterm collection and analysis of occupy related tweets that included the hashtag #needsoftheoccupiers. When tweets include this hashtag, it is a signifier of current supplies those occupations are requesting. Through algorithm based analysis and data crunching, a list of top unique needs per occupation that used this hashtag emerged. The accompanying map displays this data, where the occupy location is represented geo-locationally by the dots that form a map of North America.
