For those of you who are playing with your new iPhone today, here is an online mapping and trip planning system to try out.
You can also download Schmap to your desktop. It includes options to take virtual tours and custom print full-color guides.
Those of you using Flickr probably know of the application because Schmap uses uploaded pictures to illustrate restaurants and things to do in 200 destinations throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
The creators contacted Flickr users whose pics they wanted to use in maps. They wanted one of my Cosmic Cafe pictures for the indian food reference portion of the Dallas map. Ok, so it’s not a great pic, but colorful!
(It works on the old iPhone and the touch. Let me know how it looks on your 3G.)
