Geotagging; Data as Art?

The above map of London is a compilation of geotagging data that documents photographs taken by both tourists and locals in popular geographic locations. Eric Fisher, the mastermind behind the project, interpreted the location of Flickr photographs, and categorized them by who took the photos (blue means local residents, red meaning tourists), and where. By looking at the finished result, one can deduce which destinations are most densely photographed, and by whom.
