Hashtag Paris

If you have every been to Paris, you know that making efficient use of the city’s Metro system can be the key to a successful visit. With that thought in mind, Berlin-based journalist and amateur map-maker Tim Fischer has created a clever and useful Paris Metro map that replaces the names of 100 popular Metro stations with hashtags based on the most frequent Instagram tags in the area.

While some of the hashtags are self-evident, such as #pontdesarts and #monalisa, others like #badaboum and #silencio may require some research. Each of the tags that Fischer has chosen is based on Instagrams within 300 meters of the Metro stop.

You can try out an interactive version of the Paris map here.
