World touristiness map

Ahti Henla has produced a fascinating mashup that allows people to view the density of Panoramio images across the planet. The patterns in his visualisations look remarkably similar to the geographies of content in Google and Wikipedia that we have previously mapped out.

Head over to Ahti's site for the interactive map, or play with the KML file that he has also usefully made available.

  1. Would be cool to be able to mash up Facebook's "Cities I've Visited" thing with this stuff.

  2. Cool idea--especially given the part of the world we're looking at.
