Museums and the Web 2008: Montreal museums on interactive map


schmap montreal museum map: Montreal museums in the Schmap widget.I've just updated the Local Information Page for Museums and the Web 2008 to include an embedded interactive map from Schmap.

I first heard about this site when they asked to use some of my flickr pictures, first for the San Francisco and later for the Montreal guides. I felt a bit ambivalent about the terms of their offered license, but decided the only way to see what was what with this kind of use was to follow the advice of Gail and Shelley and just participate.

It's interesting to see how this kind of aggregation gives you a different view than the traditional travel guide, where illustrations are much more rationed.

What do people think? is it worth keeping on the local info page? is this mashed together melange of user photos and reviews the future of travel info?
