Realtime Assignment Proposal

I really wanted to use locational data from Instagram because I find it interesting to see where everyone’s photos are being taken, especially when they are extremely detailed shots. It gives a reference and helps to shape the picture in your mind of the story behind the photo. The purpose of my realtime data visualization is to show the most popular areas in the city (Manhattan only) to take photos, or is “photo-worthy”. This may influence people to go specifically to these places out of curiosity and perhaps allow more people to explore different parts of the city that they had never seen or experienced before.
