Have you ever wondered who is the most famous or notable person in your hometown ? A senior map designer from Mapbox recently created an interactive map that highlights the most famous people from around the World. Thanks to this map, you will be able to find out who is the most famous person by filtering the country you want, the city you want, the category you want .

Topi Tjukanov ‘s project uses a cross-validated database to showcase the birthplaces of prominent people. The developer changed the data to show the person with the highest search and popularity rating from each unique geographic location, meaning that if there is more than one famous person in a particular city, it will  only show the most well-known person .

You Can Find Out Who Is The Most Famous Person In Your Hometown

Tjukanov said the app uses a ranking value and a notability, or “total value,” to determine which important names are shown on the map.

Results can be filtered through various categories, including culture, leadership, sports and science . The map is set to “all” by default, so you may want to tinker around a bit to reveal hidden gems.

Since the map covers the entire Earth, it can be very entertaining and informative to review.
