Collaboration on the map....

Recently an email dropped into my Flickr inbox asking if I would like a photo I had taken of Rangitoto and licensed under Creative Commons to be included in a map project (the seventh edition of the Schmap Auckland Guide). Schmap not only offer maps. You can also 'emplore' a destination online through the combination of maps, photos and reviews. Widgets are available that can be embedded into your blog(s), and you can use the maps on your mobile device. It seemed like a great project that really started to dig into some of the potential of Web 2.0, and the sum of the whole being much greater than the parts! :-)
