Redrawing the Map of UK From Human Interactions

Thought this was pretty interesting. It is a map made by plotting social connections across the UK. This is from a research project by MIT’s Senseable City Lab.

Information from press release:

By mining an enormous database of telecommunications data, MIT researchers and colleagues at Cornell and University College London divided Great Britain into regions with strong internal information connections but weaker connections to adjacent regions. In large part, the new partitioning mirrored existing political divisions, but there were notable exceptions near the Welsh border and to the northwest of London.
