Mapping Flickr-june 2011

Images are an important form of knowledge that allow us to develop understandings about our world. Flickr is the world’s most used and most popular public repository of photographs and currently hosts over five billion images. This map reveals the global geographic distribution of geotagged images on the platform, and thus reveals the density of visual representations and locally depicted knowledge of all places on our planet.
