Locals vs Tourists Mapped Through Photography

Eric Fischer uses Flickr geodata to visualize where photos are taken in cities, and by whom. The result is a colorful divide between tourists and locals in a variety of cities around the world.

London, New York, and Paris look very completely divided, reflecting the highly organized tourist friendly areas historically popular there.
