Mapping Washington, D.C.'s Most Photo-Worthy Locations

View as Map

[The default view of this map is focused on London. To see Washington, D.C., use the tools in the map to zoom out and then meander to the District.]
Eric Fischer, a former programmer at Google, has been working on a project, called The Geotaggers' World Atlas, for five years now. In the pursuit of finding the most scenic locations around the world, Fischer took a look through Flickr's geotagged photos to see what parts of each city are most photographed. The thought process is: if a location is more photographed than others, then it must be more significant. Above, you can see which parts of Washington, D.C. are most photographed.
