I’m in Schmap!

Friday, March 7th, 2008

Hi, I thought I’d do some shameless self promotion today, and as this is my site: why not! A few weeks ago the people at Shmap contacted me and said that a photo of mine had been short listed for their Rome travel guide. What is Schmap you say? Well here’s the blurb from their website:

Schmap is a leading publisher of digital travel guides for 200 destinations throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The innovative technology behind Schmap Guides also lets end users publish their own ‘schmaps’ (to share trip itineraries, local reviews and more), and powers a popular range of Schmap Widgets, displaying maps with content and event schedules for travel, sports, concert tours and more on a fast-growing network of websites and blogs. Founded in 2004, Schmap is privately owned and based in Carrboro, North Carolina

Schmap Guides

Schmap’s series of digital travel guides integrates dynamic maps with useful background reading, suggested tours, photos from the traveling public and reviews by local correspondents (for sights and attractions, hotels, restaurants, bars, parks, theaters, galleries, museums and more) to profile 200 destinations throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Last week they said that the picture is in and this is the one that they chose:

Palazzo Venezia
