Schmap? What the heck is a Schmap…
I was asking the same thing when I got an email from Schmap’s editor stating that one of my photos on Flickr was being considered for use on the Schmap site listing for the Cummer Museum and Gallery in Jacksonville.
Schmap is an interactive virtual mapping system and a fabulous idea. To be honest, I had never even heard of Schmap before I got the email.
Exploring a Schmap Guide is a uniquely interactive experience: maps and guide content are dynamically integrated, allowing intuitive, real-time access to reviews and photo slideshows for places of interest.
Schmap allows you to view photos taken by other people who have been there, not just canned stock photography. There is a customizable widget that you can use for events and even an uber desktop for your computer that you can customize for location. Overall it is a good tool for the knowledge-loving traveler.
