What The Blue Spots or Dots Mean On SnapMap:
light coloring (blue & yellow) denotes lighter activity. Colors will shift depending on the volume of snap activity, but the lightest color as of June 2017 for SnapMap is light blue. Cause hey, sometimes we'd rather just NOT be where the other snappers are!
To start off, SnapMap has a scale of different colored "Heat Map" spots ranging from light blue, to yellow, to orange, to red. These colored hot spots denote places where multiple users have shared Snaps to the "Our Story" collection.
Light coloring denotes lighter activity, while a super-red area means it's a certified hotbed of Snap-tivity.
If you click on a hot spot you can see what's going on. Also, high-activity venues or events are also visible on the map based on their SnapMap activity. Click into the thumbnail to see Snaps from whatever events are trending on your SnapMap. Events like a concert, rally, or football game are all likely to appear red on SnapMap.
