Submit your iPhone location data and help create some beautiful crowd-sourced art
For those of you are NOT flipping out about the iPhone tracking data being “crowd-sourced” by Apple, there’s a new project called “CrowdFlow” being developed by Michael Kreil, Lorenz Matzat, and Dr. Huxorn that allows you to submit your iPhone location log file in order to create a visualization of how various wifi and cell networks are distributed all over the world.
The results, as you can see, are actually quite beautiful, and dare I say, border on art.
Or maybe it just looks like how the Earth will look moments before it meets its demise in a Kryton-like explosion. Either way, I say it looks cool.
If you would like to contribute your log file (and there is an option to still do so anonymously, if you are a wuss, check out the upload instructions here.
