Chatroulette is a pretty slapdash application. It was built by a Russian teenager, after all! So it just connects you with a stranger directly rather than routing you both through another server, allowing you to see the IP address of everyone you connect to. And an IP address can point to where that person is on a map.

ChatrouletteMaps doesn't let you pinpoint everyone you connect with on Chatroulette, unfortunately. Instead it just lets you poke around a global Google Map for screenshots of people who's IP its captured. And obviously an IP address isn't like GPS; these things aren't going to be totally accurate to the street level. But if you're curious about which country has the most perverts, say hello to your new research tool. [ChatrouletteMap via Laughing Squid]

DISCUSSION

Clearly anyone who is shocked by odd body parts has never chatted anywhere. The worst rooms for that are the religious or political rooms.

(I did a time study on this once, since I love stats and clearly have no life, and the average number of invites to "peni cam" are 45 to 60 per hour. I then returned the configuration of my system to auto decline all invites.)
