There’s ways and ways for learning about the most popular tourist destinations in the world. But if you feel like knowing which places are the ones where people take the largest number of photographs, then SightsMap.com is for you. Powered by Google Maps, this new website lets you realize in which countries people take the most photos by generating a heat map that you can turn on and off at will. You can look at any area with this heat map on, and then have it gone when you start zooming in, so that you can read names and indications clearer.
It comes as no surprise that the most photographed region in the world is the whole of Western Europe. Then, some parts of India and Brazil also see their fair share of activity. And when it comes to the US, both the West and East Coast are where the largest number of photographs are taken.
All in all, a site that does something quite original. You might find it more or less useful, but you could never say it isn’t different from the rest.
