Overtourism happens when there are so many visitors at a location that it negatively impacts locals and/or tourists themselves. Some effects of overtourism are:
The country shading shows which countries have the most tourists in comparison to their population. However, overtourism isn't the same as mass tourism. Some locations are able to cope with millions of tourists, while others struggle handling a small increase.

Every city or location that is marked with a red dot is either struggling with overtourism or has been repeatedly mentioned in news articles and research related to overtourism.
This map is built with the most recent tourism data from the World Bank. A country is grey if the World Bank has no data for it for the most recent year (2017).
As red spots are added manually this list is by no means complete.
This map is in it's early stages and was built following a bunch of tutorials. Here are some first ideas:
