"Blue points on the map are pictures taken by locals (people who have taken pictures in this city dated over a range of a month or more).
"Red points are pictures taken by tourists (people who seem to be a local of a different city and who took pictures in this city for less than a month).
"Yellow points are pictures where it can't be determined whether or not the photographer was a tourist (because they haven't taken pictures anywhere for over a month). They are probably tourists but might just not post many pictures at all."
Data as art. Just the right balance. More cities here.

One of a kind Minneapolis museum set amid charred ruins. Jason Kottke tells a great story about how he stumbled upon it.
"I love the work by Richard Long, the way he fills lonely landscapes with arcaic stones patterns. My version is a poor and lazy version of that eroic approach.. The virtual stones created by several fractal subdivision strategies, find their proper position within the circle, with a trial and error hierarchical algorythm. A mix of attractors and scalar fields (some with Perlin noise) drives the density and size of the stones. The code is a C++ console application that outputs a OBJ 3d file."
Remarkable however done. (via John Pavlus)
spherical Perlin fields interference
simple attractor exponential field
simple 1d linear polar field
simple mono attractor linear field
