Lighthouses have played a critical role in the development of ocean shipping; before radar, a lighthouse was often the only thing protecting ships from crashing upon treacherous coastlines. While no longer as critical from a practical standpoint, they continue to be important landmarks for harbors, coastal cities, and sea hazards. Iconic lighthouses can be found all around the world but tend to be concentrated in areas of heavy shipping traffic and rocky coasts, such as New England, California, and the Pacific Northwest in the USA, Canada's Maritime Provinces, eastern Australia, various coasts of the UK, and Portugal.
