Sightmap Shows a Heat Map of the World by Photographs Taken

January 25th, 2012

Photo Map.jpgHave you ever wanted to know just how
many other people visit your favorite hotspot? Ever wondered about
the popularity of the places around you? Thanks to a Google Maps
application called Sightsmap,
you can.

Sightsmap shows a heat map of the world
with the most popular photography locations shining most brightly.
It may not come as a surprise that Europe is covered with photos,
with Northern Italy in particular being a center of photography.

Big cities and tourist spots within the
US are hot, including New York, Hawaii, San Francisco, Los Angeles
and National parks like Yellowstone.

The heat map only takes into account
photos posted on Panoramio, which is a much smaller service than
something like Flickr or Facebook. It could, however, be more
popular in Europe, accounting for the strikingly higher density of
photos there.
