Where tourists go more in cities of World

Locals and tourists on Flickr has set of interesting map ( 99 cities covered ) which is similar to heat map displaying pictures taken by locals vs pictures taken by tourists from different city and the outcome can be used for huge profits as they tell you where tourists roam around more. Blue pictures are by locals.
