Cartograms are usually pretty mundane, but throw in Flickr, Photoshop, and a well-known public place and you have an artistic representation of popular colors. Much more eye-grabbing than your common map.

Based off the most recent 2,000 Flickr geotagged photos, Cartogrammar found the average color in each photo, plotted it on the map, and interpolated them into a vivid diagrammatic rendering of our most favorite colors in that area.
