Schmap Guides

I recently got an email from Schmap Guides asking if they could include one of my photos from Nice that I posted on Flickr. Cool! I checked out the site and it looked very nice. I retain rights to my photo so it was a respectful usage of my photo. I agreed and it was included.

I did some investigation of the web site and application. It is a map based city guide that takes content from W Guide and photos from Flickr and puts them all together on a map. It actually looks pretty useful for travelers especially the new option for downloading the guide to an iPhone or iPodTouch.

You can view the guide on-line or download a PC or MAC application to view it on your PC and make modifications. It also looks like you can customize and create your own. You can also get widgets.

Anyway - here is link to my photo on Schmap and the widget below which circle through the museums and includes my photo.

That's really cool, congratulations!

Hey - when did you change the header picture? I like it but it feels like winter. :(

I actually changed it a while ago. It is almost time to do it again.

That is very cool! Wow, I know someone famous!! :)

Hi Marta, very cool. Congratulations! I have not heard of them either. I wonder if they have a map on Spain too. I'll have to check out their site a little more in detail. Congrats again and thanks for posting that link.

Man, I'm a ditz; I never noticed and I'm always here.

Ok, I thought I wrote a comment for this but I guess I am losing it. Very cool photo! Now I can say I know someone famous!! :-)

Sorry about the late posting of comments. My computer crashed again and I had to get a new hard drive. Girasoli - you did comment. I was just late approving it.

Thanks everyone!

Marta, sorry to hear about your computer problems and glad I am not losing my memory.
