How we did it: We started with dozens of queries, crazy algorithms, and spreadsheets upon spreadsheets of Foursquare location data, which includes implicit visits and Swarm check-ins, plus Foursquare tips, mentions, ratings, and other singular insights. Our data surfaces the real-life trends and obsessions of millions of inspired explorers — you.

Enjoy the look back, and cheers to another extraordinary year.
