Bragging Rights: Schmap

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a representative from Schmap dot com, asking if I would consider submitting this photo to their Spain, Barcelona guide.

(Scroll to Avinguda Diaganol and my photo is the fourth or fifth to load.)

I did, and then, this morning, I received a message letting me know that my photo has been used in the updated, current version of their guide.

Schmap is an interesting take on map and guidebooks. Their guides are based on Yahoo Maps, but, the content is more or less user generated.  Users of the software client or website can post stories, information, links, and photos of favorite places alongside the maps themselves.

Guides can be downloaded for free to the desktop client, which works as publishing software as well.

All in all, Schmap is a very Web 2.0 approach to tourist guides for cities and countries, and I'm happy to be a (small) part.
