Images from the High Park Fire in Northern Colorado
This piece marks my first experience using Geofeedia. What I love about this tool is the ability to zero in on particular regions in the country — with this piece, I looked at Fort Collins, Colo. and Bellvue, Colo. — and being able to either include particular platforms in your search or remove them. Since I wanted to add more of a visual component to this, I only include Instagram and Flickr images in my search. If you’re looking for a simple, step-by-step introduction to Geofeedia, check out Buffy Andrew’s tutorial on using Geofeedia.
