The 2023 r/place Atlas

This is an interactive map aiming to chart all the artworks created during the r/place April Fools event on Reddit in 2023. It is made with information to each artwork of the canvas provided by the community.

The original code was developed by Roland Rytz and is available under the free AGPL license on GitHub.

The currently maintained version of the website is managed by Place Atlas Initiative, led by Stefano Haagmans and is obtainable under the same license within a GitHub fork.

Read more about the project from the announcement on Reddit.

Maintaining and updating the website takes work, but I enjoy doing it for free and giving this to people. But if you would like to support me, or the people who helped me with contributions to this project. You're free to support us though PayPal, Patreon, or Ko-Fi.

To maintain the same tradition, I will also be offering stickers to anyone donating more then 20$ (Due to the size increase). But, you're not forced to do anything! This only shows appreciation to us and the people who've worked on this project

Roland Rytz worked on the Atlas full-time (and more!) for over two weeks during the 2017 r/place event. If you'd like to support Roland, you can do so by PayPal. If you donate more than 10(€/$/CHF/mBTC), He'll (hopefully) send you a nice sticker of the 2017 Place canvas!


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 the contributing guide to learn how to submit a new entry, edit existing entries, or contribute to the development of the codebase.

The r/placeAtlas2023 subreddit and the Discord server is also the place to submit all bug reports, feature requests, or questions.
