Locals vs. Tourists Photography Maps

Locals and Tourists #3 (GTWA #4): San Francisco
Cool project put together by Eric Fischer of city maps dotted with photos geotagged by locals (shown in blue) and tourists (shown in red). Really interesting to see where the colors congregate. I think for the San Francisco map above his algorithm seems very accurate with most tourist photos centered around the Embarcadero, Golden Gate Bridge and Chinatown. Click through to his Flickr page to see many many more.
