Visiting a new city often presents a unique challenge: Should you stick mainly with obvious tourist spots, or do you venture off the beaten path and try for a local perspective? For many, the answer is somewhere in between. But just how different are the experiences of tourists and locals in any given city? That’s the question which seems to be at the heart of Eric Fischer’s “Locals and Tourists” project, which takes geotagged images and maps their location (but not the images themselves) in cities across the world, color coding them as either having been taken by tourists (red) or locals (blue).
