A Place Registry view of the world

Here’s another view of the Places in the Nokia Places Registry.

Each pixel is the location of one or more points of interest that we have as of the end of June 2011. Under each pixel there may only be one place or there may be thousands - as is the case in Beijing, Shanghai and São Paolo.

There’s a black & white version black & white version too.

Please feel free to use this image - but it would be nice if you acknowledge the source :-) And speaking of acknowledgement, this image comes with a large piece of inspiration from Erik Fischer (@enf)’s brilliant “ See something or say something” Flickr set showing Tweets and Flickr images - especially how these hi-res images need custom programs to render them.
