YouTube Map Explorer lets you see videos on a map of the world

YouTube Map Explorer is an unofficial way to explore YouTube videos from basically anywhere in there world. You can click anywhere on the map to see videos from a point in time. It doesn’t appear to surface video based on views or anything like that, it just appears to be random snapshots. However the potential might exist with further development to overlay a heat graph of popular videos on the globe.

I searched my home address but not a single video appeared so it is not quite there just yet. Also as seen above some videos will appear even if you click on the ocean. The developer says that the location is determined by YouTube based on where the user uploaded the video, can there really be that many people uploading from ships and boats ?

It’s worth checking out at least once.
