Applied Geotagging: Where Locals And Tourists Shoot Pictures

These maps, by Eric Fisher, are the result of interpreting geotagging data for Flickr photos taken in popular cities. Red dots mean tourist photos, blue dots mean locals. Personally I don’t see a lot of utility in geotagging, at least for myself, but hot damn does it make for some interesting (and beautiful) data.

Above you see London; there are dozens more in the set. Check it out.
