The traces left behind by the tourist can be revealed by the collection of the photos they took. What are the most visited and documented buildings? What landscape got the most people excited? Did our newly created fountain really catch the visitors eye? These questions are hard to tell without a documentation and thankfully Flickr is there to provide this data.

This looks pretty cool, but it’s not an app, it’s just a bunch of videos. Still, the concept is really interesting.
