All Photos on a Zoomable Map


Back when we launched a new visualization of all photos on a map, a lot of people asked to make this map zoomable – this is what we tried to do and here is the result.

You can find the experiment in our playground (not anymore, please read the update below). Please note: this is an early demostration and might be a bit slow – we just wanted to have it online to see its performance and get some intitial feedback from you, our dear community. Thanks!

Update: Due to some performance issues we’ve put the experiment down again. We will resolve these issues and put it online again, we just don’t want this to affect the performance of the site. Thanks for your nice feedback so far – happy to see you like it!

    @all: sorry we had to deactivate this feature – testing it with all of you showed us the speed bottlenecks. We are working on those and bring it back again, no worries!
