I’ve got an early beta invitation for madewithmap.com, an easy to use mapping tool helping people to share their journeys by connecting images with locations. Anybody who has ever used google maps to create a custom map will appreciate the ease of use of madewithmap.com
However, while it looks great, I am not sure what problem the service is trying to solve. Instagram offers mapping, flickr offers mapping, Aperture on the Mac offers mapping and so on. It looks to me that madewithmap sees itself more as, yet another, social network and I am not sure if the niche they’re inhabiting is large enough for success.
Still, for those of us who travel a lot, this might be a great storytelling tool.
