Mapping tweets and geo-location?



Firstly, I’m sorry if this is in the wrong place I’m not really sure where to ask. I’m hoping to collect some tweets and map then according to their geo-location data. What I need really is to store tweets with a certain hashtag and their geo-location in a database and have the data update when a new tweet with that hashtag is posted. Any help to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.




Hey Rory,

i am very interested in if you were successful. Have you already done anything like you were searching for?


I would also be interested to know what you did to work this out.


You can use Opheme to show Tweets on a map as they appear or filtered for keyword or hashtag (see It launches in a few weeks but a limited functionality demo can be found at
