Instagram Cities

Collection by Photo Trails


How do we explore patterns in social-media visual data which contains billions of photographs and hundreds of millions of contributors? What types of insights can we gain from analyzing this massive visual universe? Phototrails is a research project that uses experimental visualization techniques for analyzing patterns in user-generated photos. This board presents our visualizations which use the data set of 2.3 million Instagram photos shared in 13 global cities. Project URL:
