Google a heat map showing the world’s most photographed places in the world based on the photos uploaded via Google’s Panoramio. It hooks up the images with locations in Google Earth and Google maps. The results of the algorithms and the heat map itself can be seen in Sightsmap.

You can even begin planning a trip with the map by selecting a starting point and destination, which brings up estimated travel time and links to travel sites.

The smart markers feature automatically features the top 10 places and more places can be seen by toggling the places menu. Rankings can be seen according to the visible area.

The most-photographed areas are highlighted in yellow on the map with the next-in-rank filled in color orange, then pink and purple last.

New York is the most photographed city in the world, according to The Daily Mail, with “more images of New York landmarks and scenes have been uploaded via Panoramio than any other city.” Following in the list are the cities of Rome, Barcelona, Paris and Istanbul.
