hi luca.

yup - geo data should be everywhere a status is rendered. on the REST API, on streaming, and on search. if its not there, please feel free to reach out to me.

Hi Raffi,

our app (www.kirigo.com) currently fills the geo tag of status updates
- since we also want to extract this info from tweets from others, my
question is:
is the search the only way to extract the geo coordinates of a tweet?
I would rather been interested in the timeline and I can see from the
doc that the method statuses/public_timeline has a <geo/> section - is
that implemented?

Thanks a lot for your time!

Luca

hi!

i think you're confusing two different things here. the "location" is
what is set in the user's account settings (https://twitter.com/account/settings
) if it is not a geotweet.  the geo tag is set if the tweet is sent
using the geotagging API.

the number of geotweets (tweets sent using the geotagging API) is on
the rise, but its definitely still small as there is a limited number
of applications that currently support it (birdfeed, foursquare,
gowalla, etc.).  but, for example, if somebody checks in using
foursquare, and they have geotagging turned on, then you should see it.

try a search that looks likehttp://search.twitter.com/search.json?from=raffi&geocode=37.77%2C-122 ...
.  that should search for my tweets that are within 50 miles of san
francisco.  the results look like the following (abbreviated):

{
     "results":
     [
         {
             "location":"San Francisco, California",
"profile_image_url":"http://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/364041028/raffi-headshot-casual_no ...
",
             "created_at":"Tue, 24 Nov 2009 17:57:52 +0000",
             "from_user":"raffi",
             "to_user_id":null,
             "text":"Standards were invented for me to accidentally
break.",
             "id":6014464536,
             "from_user_id":278432,
             "geo":null,
             "iso_language_code":"en",
             "source":"&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.atebits.com/";
rel=&quot;nofollow&quot;&gt;Tweetie&lt;/a&gt;"
         },
        ...
         {
             "location":"37.818300,-122.245000",
"profile_image_url":"http://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/364041028/raffi-headshot-casual_no ...
",
             "created_at":"Sun, 22 Nov 2009 21:13:39 +0000",
             "from_user":"raffi",
             "to_user_id":null,
             "text":"Mmm. Brunch. Dr. Lady Friend. Good. (@ Camino in
Oakland)http://bit.ly/2cJV9";,
             "id":5955787968,
             "from_user_id":278432,
             "geo":
             {
                 "type":"Point",
                 "coordinates":
                 [
                     37.8183,
                     -122.245
                 ]
             },
             "iso_language_code":"en",
             "source":"&lt;a href=&quot;http://foursquare.com";
rel=&quot;nofollow&quot;&gt;foursquare&lt;/a&gt;"
         },
     ],
     ...

}

in both of these, the location attribute appears and is populated
because i used the geocode operator on search.  in the first returned
tweet, the location is set to San Francisco, California because that's what i have in my account settings and because that tweet was not sent
using the geotagging API (its not a geotweet).  the second, however,
has its location set to that latitude and longitude from the
geotagging API, and the geo attribute is populated -- that one is a
geotweet.

there is no current way to filter search results so that you only get
geotweets.

does this help?



Hi everyone, I have a question regarding the search API.

Take a look at these two tweets return from the API.
{

   * location: "Santa Clara, CA"
   * geo: null
}
{

   * location: "iPhone: 37.313690,-122.022911"
   * geo: null
}

{

   * location: "√úT: 37.293106,-121.969004"
   * geo: null
}

1) im not sure why I haven't seen any tweet with geo filed included(I
go through more than 20 pages). Is this normal? Is that possible to
get only tweet with geo included?

2) if 1) won't work, I want to filter all the tweets with valid
location like the second one, therefore, I can push the tweet on map.
Is the keyword also apply for the location? It's hard for the first
one cuz it doesn't have the detail address.

Thanks!
