SnapLoc — Personalized recommender for Points of Interest in a city
SNAPLOC is a product that I have created as a final project of a data science bootcamp, Metis. It does automatic picture classification and spatio temporal analysis in order to recommend the places of interest for traveling in a new city. I have been a traveler to a new city and felt a need to know about the most interesting places to explore near me and have looked at photos of other people and said I want to go there to capture this beautiful picture of bear in dawn, if feasible.

Folder named Data contains metadata of images downloaded for San Francisco from Flickr as well as tables created for analysis of clusters of images formed.
