    Has anyone else come across this site? You put in your location details and it will show you areas of photographic interest in the vicinity.

    It is a fairly useful site:

    Looks rubbish to me - put in my current location, gave places in a different city.

    There are four 'hotspots' listed near to where I work. Three of them consist of photographs taken by people who've illegally entered the busy railway yards to turn out 'urbex' type shots. The fourth is a picturesque farm, supposedly located on nearby Ogden Street - the farm is actually next to Ogden Reservoir which is a good twelve miles away.

    Based on the results for where I am now, I wouldn't trust it to give me a list of photo locations for a day out to somewhere I hadn't visited before.

    Cheers, Jeff

    It has worked well for me, it gives a good idea of if there is anything worth visiting in the area
