Location-Based Light Painting

Location-Based Light Painting from Philipp Schmitt on Vimeo.

Very cool project:

For any city, thousands of geotagged photos are available online. The project 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.
