Where Have I Been? (update)


A couple of years ago I decided to write a Python module to create flight maps (called Flight Map Creator) and I blogged about it here. Every now and then I keep on updating the CSV file and regenerating the image. I thought that it was about time that I released my new updated flight map, which is shown below.

  1. 365 px × 512 px (0.2 Mpx; 205.8 KiB)
  2. 731 px × 1,024 px (0.7 Mpx; 748.6 KiB)
  3. 1,462 px × 2,048 px (3.0 Mpx; 2.6 MiB)
  4. 2,067 px × 2,896 px (6.0 Mpx; 4.1 MiB)

I also wrote a Python script to run my function pyguymer3.image.load_GPS_EXIF() on all my photos so that I can create a scatter plot of all of the places in the world that I have taken photos with a GPS-enabled camera. Furthermore, I added some code to load up the data that I collected many years ago (before cameras had GPS’s) using my handheld GPS (which I used whilst backpacking and hiking). This map is shown below.

  1. 512 px × 268 px (0.1 Mpx; 85.1 KiB)
  2. 1,024 px × 535 px (0.5 Mpx; 275.4 KiB)
  3. 2,048 px × 1,070 px (2.2 Mpx; 902.9 KiB)
  4. 2,159 px × 1,128 px (2.4 Mpx; 587.0 KiB)

As you can see, whilst the entirety of India is shaded red in the flight map I have, in fact, only been to a very small subset of the country. There are many examples of this in my travels, countries where I have only really been to one or two cities. As always, it is difficult to describe just exactly where someone has visited and therefore the above flight map is illustrative-only.
