Google Maps Photos – 1,000,000+ Views and Counting!

My Google Maps photos have been viewed more than a million times since I uploaded the first of them several weeks ago, a whopping number! It looks like the views counter stopped today – no views are shown after I have passed this mark :)

It was a good idea to take this screenshot yesterday, just moments before the counter went off (999,733 total views):

Views on Google Maps photos

445 photos seems a bit insane to me now but it wasn’t hard at all and I enjoyed the process! It took me more than two months to add places that I really wanted to see on the map (like this mill in Spain which for some reason nobody put on the map since 2005 when the Google Maps launched). I slowed down a bit but will continue adding pictures and places at an easier pace from now.
