Crowd Emotions

Emoticons express how a person is feeling and are so frequently used in everyday conversations. By mining and tracking emoticons in social media such as Whatsapp, Twitter and Facebook, a visualisation can be created by mapping all these geographically. With this data, we can understand how a general crowd is feeling. One can choose to avoid an unhappy or sickly place or convene at a cheerful and happier place. This visualisation can also help urban planners identify and evaluate general unhappy areas.
