Share good locations - Spontaneously

Our iPhone app Good Locations allows you to spontaneously share good shooting locations with other photographers. Now we also have our Good Locations Website where you can search and filter for locations around the world.

The iPhone app and the website is based upon Nikonians motto: To share, learn and inspire. As a community, it is important that we do not only learn from each other, but that we share what we know as well. Only by sharing our knowledge, and our locations, that good stuff we'll grow as photographers and also become a better community.

You will notice that the website is in an "early access" stage, which basically means that we are working on it. We are going to improve it over time, introducing features such as upload of locations directly through your browser, from the Nikonians galleries and to be able to comment and give feedback on locations.

If you are logged in to the site, you can edit your own images and you need to use the login credentials you used when you first used the iPhone app (typically your Nikonians username and password).

We will also provide good locations apps for other smart phones this year. Google Android is one of them.

We are removing postings we believe are not providing any real value, such as shots of your office desk. If you feel you need to do a test, then flag that location as a "bad location" by selecting the sad smiley in the app when you post it. Also enter the comment "test" or similar in the comment field on that contribution.

So, please go ahead and use both the app and our Good Locations Map website and go and and scout for new locations today.
