This laboratory explores the landscape of the invisible city, using
digital traces to unveil, measure and study the meta-morphology of the
city. Participants will use large dataset of location-based social media
from Instagram and open source GIS software. They will also physically
observe selected city locations and compare their findings with the
patterns revealed by analysis of Instagram images. The participants will
work in groups producing maps, diagrams, and visualizations to gain
understanding between social practices, urban space, and their
representations in social media.

*The main dataset is 400,000 Instagram images shared in St. Petersburg
between July 2014 and June 2015. *

Participants will be introduced to a number of research methods including**
- spatial analysis using GIS,
- visualization of image collections,
- computational language analysis,
- use of computer vision to detect objects and scenes in photos.* *


*Where:*
The Science and Technology Studies (STS) Center at European University
at St. Petersburg, Russia

*When:*
August 17 - 30, 2016.

*Format:*
The hands-on lab is a part of the 2016 Summer school devoted to
exploring new methods for social and cultural research. School
activities include lectures by participating faculty from Paris, New
York, Amsterdam and St. Petersburg.

The second summer school will take place in Paris in 2017, and the third
