Photo-sharing Service Reveals World’s Most and Least Popular Destinations
by Heather Bond | May, 2012
Estonian tech firm Bluemoon has taken data from the photo-sharing service Panoramio and created a map detailing the most and least traveled destinations around the world, based on photos.
The map reads a lot like a heat-sensitive one, and shows which places are the “hottest” (represented in yellow) and the “coldest” (in blue). Areas without photos from Panoramio are gray and a good amount of them fall in Canada and Africa. The eastern seaboard of the U.S. and most of Europe were found to be amongst the top destinations.
