Here we present a multifunctional algorithm. Firstly a super-resolution method is presented for optically imaging the spatial distribution of semiconductor nanocrystals with nanometre localisation. Secondly highly resolved multiple photoluminescence trajectories of hundreds of single semiconductor nanocrystals are obtained simultaneously.
