    This is very cool. Thanks for sharing these.

    I wish I could see an interactive, vector version of these where I could zoom-in and click on each dot to see its corresponding photo.

    I guess Midway and O'Hare Airports aren't on here.

    Essentially the same as the geotagging one, looks cooler though. Neat!

    Yes, it's the same data as the other map, just interpreted differently.

    I think part of Midway made it on, right at the bottom edge.

    What is in the area on the west side around Harlem Ave. and Lake St. that interests tourists? Oak Park, so is it the architectural tours?

  6. BarrettB 58 months ago | reply

    That's Forest Ave and Chicago Ave in Oak Park, heart of the Frank Lloyd Wright district.

    Love it!

    @swanksalot They're both right at the edges of the map, halfway off the map. Someone's gone and tagged them now :)

    Incidentally, Brookfield Zoo was the first thing that I was able to find :)

    These are fascinating! And quite beautiful too!

    I like how Navy Pier is all tourists!

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called artland, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    Curious - why does there appear to be streaks of photos out in the lake? Are these typical paths that tourist boats take?

  14. Eric Fischer 58 months ago | reply

    In other cities paths in the water like that generally seem to be ferries. I'm guessing the Chicago ones are too although the routes aren't as clear as some.

  15. yooperann 58 months ago | reply

    No ferries in Lake Michigan--at least in the Chicago part of Lake Michigan. They must be from tourist boats, which are indeed very busy in those areas.

    An awful lot of Chicago is missing (like that south of 63rd Street.)

  17. Eric Fischer 39 months ago | reply

    I know, but you've got to draw the line somewhere, and there are not many geotagged pictures posted further south.

    If there is any doubt Wrigley field is a tourist trap...
