What America Ate, Drank and Saw in 2015, a data-driven infographic from Foursquare, the app for discovering new places, highlights this year's biggest moments in a month-by-month format. It hits the highest of heights — what happens when the Pope comes to town? — to the lowest of lows. (Where were you on 4/20?)
How we did it: We started with dozens of queries, crazy algorithms, and spreadsheets upon spreadsheets of Foursquare location data, which includes implicit visits and Swarm check-ins, plus Foursquare tips, mentions, ratings, and other singular insights. Our data surfaces the real-life trends and obsessions of millions of inspired explorers — you.
Enjoy the look back, and cheers to another extraordinary year.
