A chronological mapping in Medellín of geotagged Flickr photographs in relationship to the many urban and architectural projects implemented from 2004 to 2010. This timescape shows the urban evolution of the city, with projects serving as catalysts for the creation of new nodes of visibility.
Pink dots are locations of Flickr geotagged photographs, posted by local professional photographers, photography enthusiasts, and tourists. Yellow dots are locations of geotagged Flickr photos within a given year. Purple dots are locations of Instagram geotagged photographs, posted by mobile phone users. Cyan dots are locations of urban and architectural projects. Geotagged photography information pulled from the public APIs of Flickr and Instagram and mapped in three-dimensions.
It should be mentioned that Flickr was founded in 2004, which accounts for the low amount of data between 2004-2006; nevertheless the visibility nodes are quite clear. The animation shows the data trend clearly rising as Flickr becomes a substantiated networked visibility platform and its user base increases.
