Off the grid 2: here there be tourists

June 9, 2010

Eric Fischer has updated the Geotagger's World Atlas (previously covered on TGR here) by overlaying an analysis of photographers on the geo-located picutures. The result is even more stunning, capturing the different behaviors of locals (blue) and tourists (red): He drew conclusions by examining other photos by the same photographer. If they had taken photos […]

Off the grid: NYC photoplot

May 25, 2010

Eric Fischer posts the Geotaggers' World Atlas - a collection of urban networks revealed by the location of pictures taken along their routes. The geographic data comes from Flickr and was clustered and plotted to reveal various city grids. A fairly straightforward mashup of data and geography coupled with a clean visualization... I love this […]

Colors of Harvard Square

October 22, 2009

From Cartogrammar, an absolutely brilliant application of the Flickr API produces this map of the colors of Harvard Square: The map was created by taking geocoded photos from Flickr and calculating the average hue of the photograph, then plotting that color on the map and interpolating between all the resulting points.  Astoundingly, this image shows […]

Paul Mathew at signaltheorist.com describes how he attached an LED to his new Roomba and tracked its motion around his room: There's a lot of processing going on inside that seemingly bumbling robot... [via Cool Infographics]

The black and white marble

July 16, 2009

From The Big Picture's coverage of the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission - this stunning black and white photo was taken as the astronauts made their way home. One of my favorites in the collection.

Two Apples

February 1, 2009

Strictly speaking, this is a photo of a photo -- the original polaroid film was transfered to to a card, which gives the picture its distressed edges and high saturation.  As I recall, this is from 2001.

Gotham

March 8, 2008

I took this picture walking home from my office a few sundays ago (yes, sunday) from the corner of 49/Park, looking West. There was this very surreal "comic book" feel about the scene. There is a touch of HDR at work here (you can see the "halo effect" in the sky around the buildings), but […]

Sunset in Central Park

February 7, 2008

This is one of my favorite photos -- an HDR image of a sunset in Central Park.  I took it last October and though I always intended to run it through an HDR process (which requires multiple exposures of the same scene), I never actually got around to it until a few weeks ago. Fortunately, […]

Life Imitates Art

February 6, 2008

I just came across Salon.com's election coverage. Maybe I'm the last person to notice this, but the caricatures they use for the candidates are amazing.  Especially that last one.

The Parade

February 5, 2008

An amazing photo (taken by Fred R. Conrad for The New York Times) from New York's first ticker tape parade in a long time.  People were already lined up in front of Trinity Church this morning when I left for work and cars were rolling down Broadway honking incessently -- all 4 hours before the Giants […]
