Realtime Visualization of Users Browsing Photos

Our latest experiment on Lomography Playground: a realtime visualization of users browsing photos.

Photos and users from around the world

Everytime a user looks at a photo on our website dots get added to this map: a pink dot symbolizes the position of the user, a blue dot the position of the photo (if the photo is geotagged, otherwise we can’t show it on the map) this user is looking at. Clicking on it will open the last photo seen in that position.

See it in action at www.lomography.com/playground/realtime and let us know what you think of it in the comments here! And just in case you missed yesterday’s experiment, take a look here (a new approach to showing all geotagged photos and LomoLocations).

    wow cool!!!! I especially like the color coding of user and photos, but i guess i should try at a more decent hour, cos it seems like there is only 4-5 of us around right now, not enough dots!

    @all: thanks for the nice feedback so far! @stouf: something similar to that will come – first we are trying to improve the general nearby feature, then bringing it to each home

    Excellent work!!!! just a note, the pixels(dot) get clustered when there's too many pic viewed within the same region...would be even better if we can zoom in/out (like google map)

    Being able to click the "pinks" would make it even cooler. Great job!
