Luminous Cities - Flickr Tags
Visit the Luminous Cities website â†’
We've used the Flickr API to generate temporal city level maps.
This version of the project explores the spatial structures of Flickr tags. We can select multiple tags, allowing us to see how different features and topographies relate to each other. When the 'Tags' metric in the Map dropdown menu is selected it is possible to see the tags coloured individually. The colours are automatically generated as each tag is selected and added to the list on the left. You can then open the colour picker and hand tint the tags, to either group or distinguish between different features.
Luminous Cities is supported by the TALISMAN User Fellowship scheme. The TALISMAN project is based in the Centre for Spatial Analysis & Policy (CSAP) at the University of Leeds and the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at University College London.
