In this talk I will consider the analysis of social media data in an urban context, in particular we look at textual data, visual data and all their metadata to understand social and business phenomena. Analyzing such complex and diverse data poses major challenges for the analyst as the insight of interest is a result of an intricate interplay between the different modalities, their metadata and the evolving knowledge the analyst has about the problem. Our multimedia analytics solutions brings together automatic multimedia analysis and information visualization to give the analyst the optimal opportunities to get insight in complex datasets and use them in applications such as recommending venues to tourists, measuring the effect of city marketing campaigns, or seeing how social multimedia redefines urban borders.
