About a year ago I posted some maps of North American cities ranked by the clusters of geotagged photos taken there.
Recently I redid the maps, with an additional year worth of data and this time for the whole world, and with the additional twist of trying to guess how the photographers moved from place to place based on the time it took them to move the distance between the pictures:
Somehow this turns out to be about the most popular thing I have ever done. First it appeared on Burrito Justice and then on Austinist and Chicagoist, and then it hit the Flickr Blog and the clicks really started coming in. I also got a bunch of hits from a Chinese-language site that I had not previously been aware of, Jandan.net, from Londonist, Metafilter, and the Map Room, and from a bunch of Tumblr blogs. For extra excitement most of this was while I was out of town with only lousy network connectivity. The attention is falling off by now, but it's still nice to find out that other people are interested in something I put together.
