Mapping Geotagged Photos in Public Spaces

For any city, thousands of geotagged photos are available online. This  project by Philipp Schmitt maps these photos in the places where they were taken.

A custom-built camera flash + smartphone setup queries the Flickr and Panoramio APIs for photos taken at the current geographical position. Whenever there’s a photo available, a flash is triggered. Long-exposure photography captures multiple flash lights — each representing one geotagged photo — and situates them in the place of their origin.

Satellite Lamps by Einar Sneve Martinussen, Jørn Knutsen, and Timo Arnall is a project that reveals one of the most significant contemporary technology infrastructures, the Global Positioning System (GPS). Satellite Lamps glow brighter when GPS signals are stronger, and when they use timelapse photography we can see how GPS signals inhabit different everyday spaces.
