mappery featured on Google Maps Mania

Posted by mappery on October 24, 2007

mapperygmm1.jpgmappery was recently featured on the prominent Google Maps Mashup-related blog Google Maps Mania by Mike Pegg. Mike commented that mappery “bridges the gap between online maps of yesterday with a mapping interface of today.” Well said, I think that’s a great way of explaining the value of mappery. Marrying the Google Maps user interface with geocoded map files, tags, and other useful metadata enables exciting new ways to find and explore the enormous body of knowledge locked in the disorganized sea of existing maps.

A great panoramic map of the Jungfrau Grindelwald region based on the 1937 map by legendary panoramic cartographer H.C. Berann was featured in the post, check it out.
