Each dot on the map (●) represents a check-in location. Groups of nearby dots of the same color form a Livehood.
The shapes of Livehoods are determined by the patterns of people that check-in to them. If many of the same people check-in to two nearby locations, then these locations will likely be part of the same Livehood.
Livehoods reveal how the people and places of a city come together to form the dynamic character of local urban areas.
