About Team

Shenzhen @pulse presents an exploration of urban mobility and human activity in downtown Shenzhen, through visualizing social media data from @weibo. The city talks to us through the @weibo check-ins of its dwellers. Shenzhen is a sound box where individual behaviors become amplified. These behaviors form collective patterns, which are traceable only at the global scale of the city, allowing us to identify the areas where human activity concentrates, and the areas that become connected by travelers’ mobility across the city. We invite you to join us as we explore Shenzhen’s digital pulse through four unique lenses.
