Zooing all over the world

I last updated the Galaxy Zoo city league table back in April. How do things look now? In good old fashioned reverse order :

10 Down from 2nd last time, Manchester. Having e-MERLIN to play with is obviously distracting our good friends at Jodrell.

9 A new entry – Los Angeles. Presumably Hollywood doesn’t have enough stars of its own.

8 Berlin The first non-native English speaking city to make the list. Will it be the highest?

7 A suprise 5th last time, Bristol is down two spots this time.

6 The third new entry in a row is Melbourne, according to Wikipedia home to the world’s largest tram network.

5 Down two spots from 4th last time, New York is the highest ranked American city.

4 The team behind the Polish translation of Galaxy Zoo 2 have been working hard, and they’re rewarded by seeing Warsaw in 4th place. It’s not the highest new entry, though.

3 Rising four places, Sydney. Australians can’t stand the sight of a league table they’re not on the top of.

2 In second, this chart’s highest new entry – Eindhoven. A stunning performance from our Dutch classifiers.

1 But hanging onto first place in the Zoo classification stakes is London. Can anything topple the legions of office-bound zooites from the top of the tree?

    London Rules!
    But where is Ulan Bator in this list? Do it’s citizens not know of the Zoo? Perhaps they need someone to give a talk there; it seems to have done wonders for Eindhoven… 😉

    Hehe Adam! 😀 😉

    Hi from Vienna!
    I don’t think we will ever make it in the top ten…nevertheless I will continue classifying!

  8. Curtis W. Garrett says :

    UK cities should be high on the list. slightly disappointed only one US city on the list. I would be interested in a list of US states and territories. ( Isn’t that the way it goes: give someone a stake and they ask, “where’s the lobster?”)
