Flickr Cities is an interactive map which allows you to explore thousands of geo-located photographs by location, date range, day of the week and time of day. The map enables you to search and filter thousands of photos submitted to Flickr over eight years in seven major worldwide cities.
Select one of the seven cites and you can view a heatmap of the most photographed places in that city. The filter options allow you to explore where the most popular photography locations have been for different times of the year, days of the week or even for different periods of the day. You can even filter the results shown on the map by whether they were taken by a smartphone or by DSLR camera.
The map also allows you to filter the map by the tags used by the photographer when submitting the photo to Flickr. For example, if you select 'park' as the tag you can view a heatmap of all the photos tagged 'park' during the dates and times you have selected.
