Panoramio


Panoramio is a geolocation-oriented photo sharing website.

Panoramio lets you see photos from all around the world on a map. You just have to select a location and you'll see pictures from there located on the map. Anyone can upload photos of places where they have been.

Using data from Panoramio, Ahti Heinla has created an interesting heat map on Google Maps that shows how popular different parts of the world are among tourists. The higher the picture count from a region, the more popular that place should be among tourists.
