New Feature: Maps - Phase 1

I have just released the first, of potentially many phases of mapping features at Outsideways. This has been a long time coming, and is just the beginning. As they say, you have to start somewhere!

How Does it Work?

If a journal entry has a photo with location data attached to it, that location information can now be seen on a map. All journal entries that have location information will have a small map link in the top right-hand corner. Clicking on that link will display a map of the location where the photo was taken.

What About Privacy?

Excellent question. Your privacy is very important to us.

If the map link has a lock symbol beside it, then it is private (i.e. only visible by you). If there is no lock symbol, then the map is visible to the public. By default, all location information is private.

If you would like to make location information public for specific journal entries, just edit the entry, and uncheck the location private option.

Each time you post a new journal entry, if location data is found, you will be given the option to make the location public. If you do not see that option, then that means no location data was found on your photo.
