Locals and Tourists

Something absolutely fascinating:

Locals and Tourists is a Flickr set that analyses location data photos posted of particular cities and the hometown data of the photographers to show where tourists take their pictures and where the locals take their pictures.

  1. tourists take more pictures
  2. most tourists photograph the same locations
  3. locals tend to be more diverse in the range of locations photographed
No surprises in any this but it shows very neatly the power of metadata.
