Sketchfab Forum

(fun) Where's our community based?

This week I played a bit with our database, and based on IP addresses I was able to draw a map of where our members where. Here's a plot of about 60% of our members (any more would crash my browser).

Some people live in interesting places smile

That's really cool Bart!

Would be great if you could make it zoomable, like the map on 3DHubs.

Cheers!

It is, but I'm not sure if i can share that because of privacy issues..

Ah! I understand that! But surely, if it's based on IP address, location won't be very specific anyway.

The largest concentration of users seems to be somewhere around France/BenNeLux/UK area so London is near to the epicentre of Sketchfab's user base. Maybe you could publish a list of cities and the number of users, as 3DHubs does. It's interesting to see that London has more users than any other city ( but fewer printers than the top ones! ).

Cheers!

Yeah I know, but still it has usernames on the tags etc so it makes me a little reluctant to share the entire map smile Here are some closeups that might be interesting:

Well I never!!! 2,300 in the London area, 2,500 around Paris and almost as many around Sao Paulo!! That's bizarre!!

Oh! And 10 sign-ups for the London meet-up! smiley

note to self : Must change my aftershave!

Cheers!
