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?
Heh, interesting stats, better get back my London office desk 🙂
Heh, so my lecture in Eindhoven was succesful too then.. 😀 😉
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! 😀 😉
“10 Down from 2nd last time, Manchester. Having e-MERLIN to play with is obviously distracting our good friends at Jodrell.”
Oops – must try harder…. 😉
Sir Do not forget New Orleans, Louisiana. We are coming back after Hurricane Katrina Bill
Hi from Vienna!
I don’t think we will ever make it in the top ten…nevertheless I will continue classifying!
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?”)
Ah, interesting. Congrats to all the winning places.
