City maps from tourists' feelings
This is fascinating, and potentially quite useful -- although the great loft I stayed in in Antwerp is marked in a decidedly yellowish region :) (via Nelson)
The aim of this project is to map tourists’ perceptions of different urban areas through data retrieved from vacation rental platform Airbnb. After their stay, Airbnb guests score their feeling about the neighbourhood using a star-based rating system. The aggregated rating of each Airbnb listing is publicly accessible, and given the widespread expansion of this platform, a large amount of data is available for the most visited cities. When overlaid on a map of the city, the data reveals interesting geographic patterns and exposes subjective perceptions on safety, upkeep or convenience. -- Beñat Arregi
