Confluences - the World in Pop-Up Mode

I came across this fascinating global mapping project and its enormous collection of samplings from everywhere.
The official statement of the site says " The goal of the project is to visit each of the latitude and longitude integer degree intersections in the world, and to take pictures at each location. The pictures, along with a narrative describing the adventures it took to get there are then posted on the web site. This creates an organized sampling of the world."

Visit Degree Confluence Project and check out their fascinating world maps with pop-up images.

The World. Each little colored dot is a pop-up picture with a story behind.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
