Abstract

The city is a complex combination of various features that create our everyday living environment. It influences our perception of the urban surroundings and generates in us different feelings and emotions. Today, thanks to new technologies, social media provide multiple networking platforms where people can share their emotional experiences. These platforms generate a wide range of data and make available open information for all. However, their potential benefits are still not largely explored. This research focuses on visualising the evolution of urban emotions in the City of Seoul, using emotion information from social media platform. The main purpose of this study is to explore the evolution of Koreans' feelings about their city for the last five years, through processing their urban emotions in geospatial and temporal dimensions. The insights brought by this research may help understand how emotions evolve through time in relation to the urban landscape. Thus, help improve existing urban spaces and create emotionally enjoyable places that meet the citizens' expectations.
