Custom Mosaic Posters for Charity

Many people enjoyed the 3rd birthday mosaic image I made for Geograph, so I’m now offering to make custom mosaics for anyone who wants one. All I ask in return is that you make a donation of whatever you can afford to Oxfam – see my fundraising page for details.

Here’s my first effort, an A2 sized poster based on this Geograph image by Michael Ely. Click for zoomable fun!


Thankyou so much to Michael for helping me towards my fundraising target of £1500.

The images are made from tiles drawn from Geograph images – thanks to the thousands of photographers who made that possible.

Get in touch if you’d like one too!

Geograph is Three!

Geograph went live on March 6th 2005 – three years on it has far surpassed all our expectations! Here is a small selection of the 700,000 images – click the picture for a zoomable version.

Geograph is three

This mosaic is derived from Three Trees by David Crocker. Tiles drawn from images submitted to Geograph in 2007 – many thanks to the thousands of photographers who made that possible.

Naturally, the above image is available for re-use under a Creative Commons 2.0 by-sa licence!

The mosaic was created with Metapixel and the zoomable version was generated with Zoomify. Suggestions for more celebratory mosaics are welcome!

500,000th Geograph Photo!

Yesterday Geograph got its 500,000th photo – the archive now contains over half a million, freely reusable, geographical and geolocated images!

Rather serendipitously, the image that tipped the balance was of a milepost marker, taken by Martin Bodman.

Remember, all the photos are licenced with a Creative Commons by-sa-2.0 licence, making an astonishly useful resource which we hope will become a lasting archive.

Here’s to the next milestone – one million images! We should hit that sometime before December 2008…
