Splendor is nice example of how simplicity in data visualization can provide a fresh perspective on data research.

In this project, the positions of photos of landmarks (such as monuments, famous buildings etc.) are connected to the geographical position of the landmark itself. As a result, each landmark can be characterized with respect to its “best viewed angle”, the distance at which it is typically photographed, etc.
