    Does identi.ca do geolocation? I'll tell everyone to turn it on for the Desktop Summit, then you'll have more data! :D

    I'm just wondering what that rather large patch of red is, SW of Greenwich. Crystal Palace park, maybe? Lots of athletics photos?

    Fabuloso, as always. Well done.

    Really interesting. As they say - data is everywhere!

    Fascinating, and beautiful too!

    This is fantastic. There's a relatively large red-patch in SE London, about two thirds down the image, and two thirds across (from left)*. Any idea where this is?

    *Should I add a note to show where I mean? (I don't like notes, but it might be handy!)

    It's a very beautiful and interesting image, this one as all the others. Well done, great job. Can you publish a picture of Rome?

    I went ahead and added one of Berlin even though it's not very Twittery, because it still looks good. Here is Rome too.

    This is lovely! I would hang it on my wall for sure...

    Thanks! I don't think there's enough city-level data from Twitter yet to make versions detailed enough for a wall hanging, though. Hopefully it will be possible to add more detail as more data comes in.

    so cool! Trying to work out exactly where Clapham is :)

    Amazing. Could resist doing a quick overlay onto a GoogleMap screenshot for interest.

    Yes, that's Crystal Palace National Sports stadium.

    Clapham is half-way down and about 4/10ths in from left - it's the white blob just to the right of the downward loop in the river.

    Super - thanks for that!

    what would a 1000mp image of the earth take to render and arrange, and printed over the size of a 2-3 floor building wall. say.. the tate modern. ?
    ~
    or better yet to render the image as a spherical object, and have it constructed to be visible inside and out, setup with micro led's/lcd. that would be.. ;)

  17. Eric Fischer 33 months ago | reply

    I had originally rendered the earth one as a 200 megapixel image, but Flickr wouldn't allow posting anything that large. But it wouldn't take much more to go to 1000.
