Sex versus religion

Sam sent me a link to this interesting map using geotags with references to Sex, Allah, Hindu, Buddha, and Jesus.

My concern is that the geotagged places may not have been done by locals, but by tourists. This map seems to imply that these tags reflect local values and beliefs. But what if a lot of tourists taggged up India with references to “Hindu”? Or California got tagged up with “sex shop”?

It’s a pretty big grey area to draw anything conclusive about the data. The creators also mention the fact that all the searches were in English. I get that for India, but Brazil?
