I am working on a project for which I want to capture as many images as possible of lightning strikes from the same thunderstorm above New York City from November 13th 2021. Therefore, I need to amass an archive of images (Jpeg or TIFF ) of lightning strikes that occur at that time and were posted in the same geolocation.
I would like to collect images from open instagram accounts of users who took pictures in NYC on that date with certain keywords like 'lightning',' lightning strike', 'thunderstorm' 'Thunder' 'world trade center' 'World Trade Center lightning strike'. To further access relevant pictures should the metadata of the pictures also be taken into consideration? Could we search more images of the same type using an image of a lightning? Should we also consider other platforms like Twitter and shutter stock etc?
