We’ve asked a few of our power explorers how they use Map Your City and we were amazed how they used the favorites map option.
Map Your City - as our name might tell - is built around creating communities on maps. Our map enables explorers and storytellers to meet and exchange travel stories, news, events, trivia and more about places.
Both Explorers and Storytellers can create a map. The difference between the two is that Explorers – anyone who creates a free account on Map Your City – can create a map with their own favorite places for their personal use. Like an itinerary or a treasure map. They can collect all the places to their map that our communities of Storytellers have already shared.
For Storytellers maps are public. Storytellers – like a city or town, event organizers, travel vloggers, photographers or architecture lovers – get a tonnes of extra options on a premium subscription, like: creating a custom map, map new places, and have explorers follow them.
More than 21 ways?
Now the fun thing is when we created Map Your City we could not foresee every use case how people would put the “Favorites Map” feature to work.
If you’re not familiar with the feature yet: you simply hit the ❤️ of a place you love and like to save and they will be added to your personal map.
We had discovered 21 ways to use the option, but people proofed much more creative than we anticipated. Here are some of their stories as inspiration for your own favorites map.
