Web 2.0 provides a great environment for interactive information sharing and collaboration. We are no longer to receive information passively. On the contrary, everyone can contribute content and share personal experiences. It is a perfect social media for travelers to be connected. faveCITY is a visual exploration of what do people think and how do they feel about their favorite cities. It collects users' opinions about the city such as city emotion, favorite city feature, best season to visit and a souvenir recommendation. The goal of this project is to combine Web 2.0 features with information visualization to create an information-sharing platform for city travelers. By visualizing these data, it could provide users unique travel advices, such as which city is the most popular travel destination right now, which city is the most romantic city etc. Furthermore, the platform is interactive and the data is live which means the results could be changed in real time.
