Project Description:
Los ojos del mundo (the world's eyes) illustrates the photos people visiting Spain leave behind them as evidences of contemporary tourism in the country. What do they see? What do they enjoy? Where do they travel to? Where do they come from? In order to answer some of these questions, and make tourism a more quantifiable phenomenon, the authors used flickr's large pool of photos (and its inherent metadata) to produce a set of 3 alluring visualizations mapping different behavioral patterns across Spain: (un)photographed Spain - density and flows of photographers in the Iberian Peninsula; Spaces of Diversity - Britons weaving their path in Barcelona; and finally, Spaces of Activity - photos from Barcelona with tags related to 'partying'.
