Meta-morphology Lab - Turku

Exploring social media data to map the invisible image of the city.

This workshop uses location-based social media data to unveil, map and study the meta-morphology of Turku. Participants will use large datasets from Instagram, Twitter and Airbnb to find meta-trends in the use of outdoor and indoor spaces and map activity patterns using geographic information software. They will also carry out surveys to study the relations between urban amenities and the image of the place to gain a new understanding of the qualitative aspects of social practices and the narrative of urban spaces.
