Do you ever wonder how different your experience of London is, compared to a tourist visiting the capital?

If you live outside zone one, and don't often get a chance to see the Houses of Parliament or Oxford Street, then you might have a very different image of London.

One photographer has created maps to show just that: the blue colouring shows photos taken by locals, while the red colouring indicates photos taken by tourists (the yellow could be either).

The maps show that while some areas are chock-a-block with tourism, areas outside of the centre are for locals only!

The project, by Eric Fischer, is entitled Locals and Tourists, and is created from Twitter data and MapBox (data from 2010-2013); locals were considered as people who tweeted from the same location for at least a month, whereas tourists tweeted from a place different from their hometown.

In total, 136 maps were created as part of the Locals and Tourists project, and can all be viewed on Eric's website.

What London looks like through the eyes of locals and tourists

The results of the maps are interesting, but not incredibly surprising!

With so many beautiful landmarks in central London, it's no wonder tourists flock to take photos of them first.
