Realtime Visualization of Users Browsing Photos

34

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!

    Tipster: DIY X-Pro Redscale

    Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
