Where the pictures are the maps

Someone took data from Panoramia and made a series of maps showing where the most touristy places are, as well as the most interesting remote places. In a similar vein, someone else dug through Flickr and Picassa and found the most photographed areas around various world cities. For instance, here are London, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Vancouver, and Tokyo.

Oh, and while we’re at it, here are ten maps that changed the world, or something silly like that.
