Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have helped a company create a one-stop shop for checking out scenic views of anywhere in the world. lets anyone create and share videos on YouTube and then add them to spots on the site's interactive map. According to the site's ‘About Me,’ the videos must be filmed outdoors with a non-military UAV, shot in high quality and be a clear representation of the location.

For example, clicking a pin on the coast of Spain brings you directly to a six-minute video of Barcelona, where you can see detailed views of the massive Sagrada Familia and even see a couple waving to the drone from their balcony. With hundreds of pins to choose from, the site shows that UAVs are proving to be excellent virtual tour guides.
