Have You Schmapped?

I haven’t spent much time exploring the new (?) online mapping service Schmap as of yet, but it looks like it could be a pretty cool interface, and Portland is one of their featured cities.

I actually only found out about it because they asked to use one of my pictures on one of the restaurant listings for N. Portland’s own Beaterville Cafe (though hello, I’m pretty sure they take cards there). Not many of the listings have pics yet, so I’m guessing they’re still looking for shots — they notified me via Flickr, so if you’ve got photos of local restaurants posted there, check your e-mail on the site.

I don’t often find myself in need of an all-inclusive citywide search thingamabob, but if you’re looking for yet another guide to the city complete with mini reviews and map linkies, Schmap looks like a decent bet.

    It’s not just restaurants-they used my photo of the Convention Center created in Legos too. You just beat me to the post. (:

    cool! figured they grabbed some other local blogger types. I’ve been sitting on this a bit, didn’t mean to get their first…

    Public Press is also looking for people to add their photos to businesses, parks, schools, etc. We have about 800 places in Portland and over 2000 photos up, so join the party :)

    I’d never heard of them until they contact me about using a couple photos… one of some Mongolian Grill food, one of the Broadway Bridge.
