Roundabouts worldwide map

I've recently seen this interesting map which apparently shows all the roundabouts located all around the world.
Let's talk about it:

It's appears to be impressively accurate. At least for the Oslo (Norway) area that I'm the most familiar with. I'm less sure what use I have of this information though but still a cool find.

Yeah! Is prety impresive, also in Bogotá, that map shows most of them;
but it seems that those big ones are not in the map (likely those that have intersections over or under), like this:


Anyway... Is great!!

It's interesting. Whereas most of Europe have lot of roundabouts everywhere, the rest of the wolrd is not much prone to roundabouts.

I remember reading somewhere that more than half of all roundabouts are in France but looking at this map makes me question that.

Perhaps it was true 20 or 30 years ago, but nowadays roundabouts are increasing all over the world.
However, looking at this map I would say more than half of roundabouts are located in southwestern Europe so far.

You can add Morocco to the list.
Almost every road infrastructure project since the last few years is following the "french way".
Roundabouts are now everywhere, in every region, every city: expressways, mainroads, crossings,...The diversity of roundabouts is also striking: planted, non planted, ugly, kistch, but also some nice ones ...
This said, in a country among the top 5 worlwide in terms of road casualties some say roundabouts represent quite a positive thing as they help reduce the impacts of moroccan drivers undisciplined road behaviour
