Remember when we went to Iceland back in 2014?
Well, I took a few thousand photos and while I uploaded a bunch to the web and Karin made a nifty little book out of some others, and still more I’ve used in various blog posts that I’ve published, there were a small collection that I handed over to Google Maps.
Those photos needed to be “views” — images that showed a place, avoiding recognizable people and well composed. Some could argue: why give your pics away? But Google Maps is a tool I use and if I can give a little something back to make it better for someone, why not?
Well, Google sent me an email yesterday: apparently it’s helped about a quarter million people… so, warm-fuzzy for me, huh?
