Announcing TopPlace Heat Maps v2

News, Product

We are glad to announce the availability of our new version of TopPlace Heat Maps. The newest version uses 5 times more data than the previous version, which results in more detailed worldwide coverage. The heat maps show the most loved areas for main traveler activities like Eating, Nightlife, Shopping and Sightseeing in any place on the planet (also known as Areas of Interest).
