Geotaggers' World Atlas

Photographer Eric Fischer has been using data visualization in his Flickr set, The Geotaggers’ World Atlas. Using geo-tagging tools, his imagination and some Perl scripts, Eric is plotting Flickr photos on a map and highlighting 50 major cities in a vector view. The different colors represent different modes of transportation: Black is walking (less than 7mph), Red is bicycling or equivalent speed (less than 19mph), Blue is motor vehicles on normal roads (less than 43mph); Green is freeways or rapid transit.
