    This is a brillant idea. Please make it into a smartphone ap and make lots of money with it. I'll buy it.

    Precise mapping of human movement,
    the congregation patterns created,
    reflect and clarify a city.

    Thanks to Erik Fischer for my art installation :-)
    Erik- sell this stuff and reach more people- happy to share info.

    How do these maps look without the lines, are the streets still so well defined?

  8. Eric Fischer 34 months ago | reply

    It depends on the place. The London map would be just about as solid with just the dots, being as heavily photographed as it is. Some other cities would look much sparser.

    Hi Eric these are really beautiful interpretations, how do you generate them (without giving the game away). Are they individual points or do the lines thicken with the number of pictures, like a sankey type diagram?

  10. Eric Fischer 34 months ago | reply

    Thanks! In this series, the individual points are plotted as well as lines when someone took two pictures within a reasonably short time and distance of each other. When lines appear thicker, it is just because two lines that were nearly the same were drawn on top of each other.

    Watch Stratford light up next year. I'll have nigebox as my tour guide. SE1 (Southwark/Borough/Shad Thames) is a fascinating area..The Clink, Borough Market, Southwark Cathedral, Warehouses/wharves, site of Marshalsea debtors prison (where Dickens' father found himself in 1824. Became source of inspiration for 'Little Dorritt') and the utterly unmissable 'George Inn' coaching house/hostelry. Other top London sites must include The Oval, Keat's House, St. Thomas' Operating Theatre, Brixton Academy (so many good nights spent there), oh and UCL

    The work of future
    is to change the words
    and maintain the intention.
