A great video from @tollerton: 1601 check-ins, 7 countries, 1 year. Check it out!
RatioFinder is our newest weekend project. We built this interactive map to illustrate the gender breakdown of venues (parks, coffee shops, massage parlors, etc.) all over New York and San Francisco.
Use it to uncover which coffee shop attracts the most guys, or where girls outnumber guys 10:1 (Hint: fashion school). Ample filtering options can help find the data you want.
Zoom in to explore neighborhoods or venues -
Interested in seeing other types of demographic data portrayed? Send us your thoughts we will do our best to get it in production. (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org)
More info on RatioFinder will be coming soon. Until then, enjoy exploring!
The Weeplaces Team
Weeplaces is interested in the practical information contained in geodata. ‘RatioFinder’ was built by analyzing Foursquare check-ins.
We’re extremely excited to launch geoprofiles as well as Facebook Places and Gowalla integration!
Though badges, points, and deals are fun, what do you do with 150 checkins and 3 badges?
Well, checkins are a record of our experiences, activities, and places we’ve been. WeePlaces makes use of this data by creating geoprofiles, a personal page of these experiences. Geoprofiles enable you to:
1. Visualize your location history and discover trends.
2. Group, annotate, and share checkins (coffee shops visited in the Mission, or weekend trip to NYC).
3. Connect with friends and view the places they’ve been.
Geoprofiles are a new way to use and find value with checkins. Our greater vision is that geoprofiles become a feed of your location life, serving as a storage and organizational tool for all geodata (checkins, pictures, descriptions, tweets, comments).
There are currently tens of thousands of people creating profiles and sharing content. Try it out.
Visit Weeplaces.com and select your service of choice (Foursquare, Facebook Places, or Gowalla).

Your geoprofile is created - visualizing your checkins, areas you visit, where you spend your time, how your usage has changed, etc.
Click on any of your friends, combine their geoprofile, and view where you both hang out. Blue is you, grey is your friend, and pink is the overlap.
You can organize and share your checkins how you want. Show restaurants in San Francisco, or your last month of checkins.
Every want to keep track of what you did there, or you were with, or what you ordered? Add a note, a review, or a description of any checkin. Your friends can comment, ask you a question, or leave you a note as well.
We’re looking for feedback on how to make us better. Please send us comments, thoughts, and ideas. We read and respond to everything.
Want to share an weekend in the city? Or a recent vacation?
We just pushed grouping of checkins so you can illustrate and share portions of your checkins. Choose a time period - a hectic day, a road trip, a week’s routine - and show friends where you traveled.
HOW TO SHARE A GROUP OF CHECKINS
To share a group of checkins, log into your WeePlaces profile. Then, drag the brackets of your timeline (highlighted in yellow) to your preferred date range.
You can also add comments to your check-ins. Scroll below your map to tell friends what you did, who you were with, or leave a review.
To share, just click the box above the brackets to post to Facebook.
Have any suggestions, thoughts, feedback? Send it my way and we’ll probably build it.
We just added auto-refresh functionality. If that doesn’t work, try adding /?refresh/ to the end of your map URL. Let me know if that works. Thanks!
Thanks for the feedback. We pushed that functionality. It should be at the bottom right corner of your map.
Thanks again for the feedback.
We just pushed new friends + you overlay functionality.
Blue is me, grey is Harj’s, and pink where we both have hung out.
+ giving you the ability to add a note.
Feedback needed. Drop us a line or leave a comment.
