One can have a broad and deep experiential knowledge of cheese without knowing the general national opinion of a cheese.
Disagree.

If OP is opening a shop that specializes in ONE thing, he/she should know what he/she is selling.

Customer asks "So what makes this cheese so good?"

"I don't know, really, some random person on a message board said that it was the country's favorite."

Nothing like the chariot de fromages at a good restaurant anywhere in France. I always ask for the local cheeses I've never sampled before.

The best cheese I ever had was sold by a farmer in Bavaria straight from his mountain farm. It was an insanely aromatic and savory Bergkäse. We bought a big loaf of it and I still regretted not buying more. The real gems don't come from factories.

Fun graphic...some of my favorites listed. I don't have much experience with eastern European cheeses, though.

The two most popular cheeses from Hungary, Trappista and Anikó, aren't even listed. The cheese that is listed, rögös túró, translated, is just cottage cheese curds.

Pretty sure OP is behind the website and the generated map and is expecting free feedback on the accuracy of their work. Brilliant. A true cheese purveyor would not start such a preposterous thread on a random forum.

The UK has over 700 cheeses and a number of famous ones such as Cheshire, Double Gloucester, Red Leicester, Wensleydale etc are missing from the OP's chart.

Cheshire is one of the oldest and most popular cheeses in Britain and Nantwich in Cheshire is home to the International Cheese Awards, one of the most prestgious events in the global cheese calender. I would have certainly mentioned it on a major cheeses chart, along with others I have already mentioned.
