The VT Data base

by pieter_jan_v Online Now Feb 5, 2017 at 8:29 AM

As most of you know, the VT data base always was a source of exploration to me.

I just updated the overview on the data base and the story behind it; it's published in Travelogues at my Profile page.

Just for the record: Now that VT will close, the database contained 2243192 unique locations on the globe.

The additions of last year can be found at: "The Virtual Tourist Data base, part 11" - Personal Page by pieter_jan_v

I hate to see VT close; plans to add the LAT/LONG to each of the locations are halted .... a shame.

    I am always amazed by your work on VT statistic. I did not find any similar online travel site with so many tips in general. It is shame to let it go!
