NYC Fashion Index Weekly Update




As previously mentioned, we chose Python to incorporate data set from Instagram API.

It would be necessary to utilize My SQL for geospatial libraries. For data mining, we focus on collecting geospatial tags in NYC areas to analyze fashion. Using relational database will fit for our project. We are planning to incorporate multiple data sets e.g.) hashtags+Images+Link between images and hashtags+ Iocational information (where the pic was taken, neighborhoods)

Ren and Tessa met Prof. Gold to get feedback for our projects. First of all, our project has to emphasize the “analytic research angle.” It would be better to observe patterns across multiple data sets. Also, we discovered the fact that crowdsourcing was unpredictable and unreliable. Regarding to this matter, we would rather lean more towards curated approaches for our project.
