In order the better capture the attractiveness, an indicator on hot spots have been applied. Hot spots are areas with significant higher concentration of pictures compared with the rest of the region and have also a significant spatial aggregation. It should be noted that the hot spot has a spatial extent, i.e. there is a high probability that people move inside the hot spot (in other words the same person will take pictures from different places inside the the hot spot). This also makes a difference with areas outside hot spots, there can still be a relatively high number of points where pictures are taken, but these points are not spatially clustered. Two type of hot spots have been identified: hot spots in rural areas and hot spots in urban areas.
