HotCity: Augmenting paper maps with urban social context (Video)

Our work builds on urban social context data, sharing and displaying these in non-traditional mobile interfaces.
We have already investigated the visualisation of urban social context using heatmaps in pervasive displays and native mobile apps.
This latest demo shows our work in augmenting traditional paper maps with 3D artefacts, whose coloration and size is determined by social media data.
