Check Out This Map Based on Instagram Geolocations to Visualize the Difference Between Tourists and Local New Yorkers

The Inequaligram Project is a study by the City University of New York which aims to look at geolocations of Instagrams posted in New York City to see the difference between what locals and tourists share on the social network.

“This directly affects city economy and social life,” the team reports in their study. “The areas well represented in social media attract more people who spend time and money there. The invisible areas are less likely to be visited.”

The map above is an interesting way to look at economics from a social media perspective. Read the full report for more interesting figures and analysis.
