Leeds Art Crawl ( is a tool to generate real-time location based data about art. People take photos of art they find within Leeds, and upload them to twitter (with location services turned on) tagging each entry with #leedsartcrawl. Over time a comprehensive database of places where art lives is created helping us not only know where art is within the city, but also what it looks like, and their current state of repair.

Meta-information attached to each tweet forms datasets with the following information:

  • Twitter username
  • Profile ID
  • Date
  • Latitude and longitude
  • Avatar picture
  • Art photo
  • Link to the original tweet
