Structure of the bridge

The bridge is made of 2 sides. Left and Right designate the two sides when looking at the Louvre with the Institut de France at your back. Here's a simple Google Maps to find your way.​
Each side is made of 8 lamposts, with 8 panels between each lamppost. We call this area an OctoPanel.
There are 56 panels on each side. Each one is called a Panel.
To find a lovelock on the bridge, each panel was cut in 8 areas (2 rows and 4 columns).
There are 8*56*2 = 896 referenced areas on the bridge. We call them : Bundles of lovelocks
For 37,374 lovelocks photographed.
