→ Instagram posts can showcase the city highlights, uncover the aspirations of residents, and illustrate a variety of their activities in public spaces.
While we should not expect it to deliver an accurate picture of reality, Instagram can still be a valuable source of data for city research.

- scraping posts from Instagram API
- preprocessing and cleaning
- analysis and visualisation
See in detail how we explored Bratislava parks using Python and Instagram API.
