The 2017 r/place Atlas

This is an atlas aiming to chart all the artworks created during the r/place April Fools event on Reddit in 2017.

The code was initially developed by , then continued by the Place Atlas team, and is available under the free AGPL license on GitHub. The original 2017 Atlas is still accessible, along with the respective code repository.

I have worked on the Atlas full-time (and more!) for over two weeks.

If you'd like to support me, you can do so by PayPal or Bitcoin.

If you donate more than 10(€/$/CHF/mBTC), I'll send you a nice sticker of the Place canvas!

If you donate by Bitcoin and want a sticker, please send me a message with your Bitcoin address before you make the transaction!


This project is open source, and contributions are welcome. In fact, the Atlas relies on user contributions.

To contribute a label for an artwork, please read this guide to learn how to submit a new entry, edit existing entries, or contribute to the development of the codebase.

The r/placeAtlas subreddit and the Discord server is also the place to submit all bug reports, feature requests, or questions.
