visualizing my photostream views

using a Hilbert Jigsaw Treemap to visualise how my photo views are distributed throughout my photostream. Each coloured area represents one photo, and its area is in proportion to the number of views. Mouseover for notes.


More detailed info on the Jigsaw Treemap here [PDF]. Obligatory XKCD cartoon here :-)


A quarter of my views come from 5 images... the distribution seems to follow a power curve, a few images with lots of views, and a large number with fewer views.


Data extracted using the Flickr API, and plotted using a Python script with Matplotlib.
