Tourists now have no excuses for taking ropey pictures of Britain’s landmarks – because Google has pinpointed the best places to stand at each one for the perfect shot. It worked with a team of social media experts to produce the coordinates and has revealed them on interactive maps.To demonstrate how the concept works Google produced a handful of photos of the ideal spots for landscape pictures and selfies at Trafalgar Square, the Coca-Cola London Eye, Tower Bridge and Brighton Marina. For these photo shoots Google placed markers on the ground, which have since been removed.To produce the coordinates the team first analysed 80,000 United Kingdom (UK) Instagram posts relating to popular photography hashtags such as #dayout and #landscape. From this, a shortlist of top locations were then put to a public vote to discover the nation’s favourites.Finally, using geographic location coordinates and frequency of hashtags, the research team was able to find the exact spot at which the majority of photographs were taken at each of the top locations and Google then mapped out exactly where to find them. The research, which was conducted to celebrate the launch of the Google Pixel 3a smartphone, found that London’s Tower Bridge is the ‘most photographic backdrop in the capital’, with Brighton Marina the top location in the UK at which to snap the perfect picture in front of.
