Triposo Travelhacks

Triposo started out as a series of data experiments to analyze travel related data and do interesting stuff with it, similar to Google hacks, but then about travel.

Triposo is an experiment in Travel hacks. The basic idea is to analyze travel related data and do interesting stuff with it, similar to Google hacks, but then about travel

For example, If it's Tuesday, this must be Belgium analyzes which days of the week people visit cities. Associate dates with visits to places, number crunch and you get this map.

Other things we tried were to look at where people take pictures and correlate that with the sights that are there. You can then go one step further and take the weather into account - places where people always take pictures no matter what the weather are a good bet to go with bad weather, while places where people mostly take pictures on a sunny day, are best visited when it is also sunny

We also did a bunch of text analysis on reviews and wikipedia articles and then packaged it all together into a travel guide and made a company out of it. Visit the home page at:
