This is the follow-up on my first experiment with the Flickr API. It's a short narrative about growing cities and where they are. The animation is based on the information from The numbers show the assumed annual growth rates for cities and urban areas between 2006 and 2020 The only western cities in the top 100 are Las Vegas (30) and Atlanta (78). The animation searches for matching photos on Flickr giving an insight in what these new look like. It's a lineair narrative, and also dynamic.
