Shazam music recognition maps

Posted to Maps  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Shazam is a service with an app that lets you point your phone towards some music to identify the name and artist of a song. For a hack day, Umar Hansa mapped a billion recognitions. Some of the maps color-code recognitions by iPhone and Android use which is kind of interesting.

Hansa used Eric Fischer’s datamaps, in case you’re interested in making your own.
