Using the easy-to-use mobile place update feature available on ExplorOz you can instantly create a log for your friends/family and yourself within your Member Profile of places
All you need to do is use your iPhone and take a photo of a place and then send that photo by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The send from email account on your phone must be the same as you've got registered in your Member profile for this to work, and you must have the GPS enabled in your phone.
Our system will receive your email and read the GPS data out of the picture file. It will then check against our Places
database and load your photo into the correct Place record (or create a new one if none exists at/or near that GPS position).
For each Place that you load or update, your Member Profile will tag the Place in the side panel in a section called "My Places". When you click open the list of My Places
, each one will feature only the photos that you have taken, even if other people have also added photos to the website for that same place (as shown in the full Place page).
Knowing this nifty trick can be useful for people that are travelling that don't have time to write long blogs
or diaries but do wish to keep their family/friends informed about their movements. Give it a try on your next trip!
