set of geo-visualizations, based on the time, explicit location & people’s description of thousands of Flickr photos. by considering that uploading, tagging & disclosing the location of a photo can be interpreted as an act of communication, rather than a pure implicit history of physical presence, the resulting maps reveal patterns of tourists & citizens consuming a city. for instance, the flow of people between city attractions, the monuments areas of influence or what is happening with day/night & working/weekend periodicity.
