    Is there anywhere you provide the code you used to generate these maps, or at least a more technical overview of their creation?

    Thanks, and nice maps!

    I haven't posted the code anywhere but will have to do that. But basically it is just sorting all the geotagged pictures by photographer and date/time, and for each two adjacent pictures that are reasonably close together in place and time, drawing a line between them.

    Ok yeah, I got a better of sense of that once I zoomed in to full resolution. I guess this implies more people take geotagged photos while driving than I thought :-D

    Thanks for the reply!

    Very interesting, and it the result really makes sense, I see all the places where a lot of people take photos, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Montmartre, La défense, quartier latin, Versailles...

    Dear Eric,

    Great job! From the perspective of urban mobility your maps are very interesting and illustrative. Do you have a larger region for Paris or is it the maximum extension shown here?

    Thank you very much for your answer!

    Thanks! I plotted all the maps to the same scale for side-by-side comparison, but it shouldn't be too hard to replot a larger area if there is something further away that you are interested in.

    I'm guessing that the colored lines have a meaning? :)

    Also, it would be interesting (IMHO) to remove the time constraint and just plot based on placement :)

    It is funny to see that the most photographied place of Paris are not necessary the busiest.
