This Java application streams geocoded tweets from Twitter and places them on a map. As tweets accumulate close together, the area fades from blue to red in heatmap-fashion.
I didn’t make it availiable for usage in the browser because of the complications with authorizing accounts’ access to Twitter’s stream. Java applets are badly supported in browsers, so it wouldn’t have been worthwhile to implement the authorization method. Of course, if you’re a developer yourself, you can modify the source code to use your OAuth credentials.Download Source
