The Color Palette of Reno

Color Reno has analyzed 15,000 photos taken in Reno to determine their predominant colors. The day of the year and the location of each photo has also been extracted to create an animated map showing the changing colors of Reno over the course of a year.

Color Reno includes a number of interactive maps. The animated maps drop colored round markers on the map for every day of the year. The colors represent the predominant color in each photo. As the maps cycle through the year you can observe the changing colors of Reno.

Color Reno also includes one non-animate map which simply plots the location of each of the photos used in the experiment. If you click on any of the markers you can click through to view the photo on Flickr.
