Places to visit

Postby neon » Fri Jan 17, 2014 3:26 pm

This is more general than just this dreamhack trip, but possibly worth a mention for lack of a better place to put it.

If you are looking for new things to see while visiting a holiday destination, this site might be of interest. http://www.sightsmap.com/

It shows a heatmap of where people have taken photos (hurrah for EXIF & GPS data). Mike and I were looking at it last night to see where else we might want to visit in Japan. It seems a good way of finding places that guides may not have suggested but are worth a visit for the view. Zooming in gives you the individual photos and markers for the sites in question.

Thought I would share :)

This really is spectacular, after spending quite some time on travel websites I've never before seen anything like this, other than Google maps "cool stuff's" layers.

Thanks for sharing, I'll use it when I'm in Belgium next week (although dammit, I know that city inside and out... I think - I'll put it to the test with this tool!).

Belgium is a country not a city :wink:

Ideal for you James :)
