Get flickr Data
I am very new here and I need a proper advice, please. What approach would you recommend to get meta data of flickr photos? I need something like geo data and other data which is provided by flickr to use the common data-mining methods in rapidminer to analyse the data. My problem ist: I know how to use the data mining methods but I don't exactely know how to get the data. Of course there is a flickr API... but I really don't know where to start to think about... souId I start studying how to use a web crawler? Or should I start studying how to use the flickr API? I need an advice where to start to think about... I have got an example rapidminer process to use an API but I don't even understand exactely what it does and that makes my crazy. I want to understand the process...
Any help out there?
