Default Please help us with this unique concept!

Hello,

We are trying to create the world's largest database with pictures of milestones and views of every city in the world. To accomplish this, we need your help!

Send in your best pictures which can be of your home town, a city you like or of a place you have visited during a holiday. Basically, the only criterium of the photo is that the location has to be somewhere on this planet.

Thanks

Sjoerd

It's no spam, it is a non commercial project. The only thing we want is a large amount of visitors who upload there picture to create a large database with city's and places around the world.

I think it looks like a cool idea, but Im not sure how people will feel about copyright.
I'm sorry I don't have any good pics of London, where I live, or I'd send them.
Good luck

Why not? I thought their copyright disclaimer was ok:

'You keep the copyright on the uploaded material. Visitacity.net will not use your material in other publications without asking for your consent.'

Anything to observe here?

Best regards,
Andy

I like the concept of the website. When all cameras start saving GPS info along with EXIF data, it will become easy to automate databases like this.

One remark straight away though: the site displays the submitter's email address even if you ask it not to. For anyone who is trying to avoid getting more spam in their inbox, this is not good.

I just checked. I'd used a throw away address & it only shows the prefix, not the whole address:

"Saturday, August 14 2004, 07.09 by Fghjk from Afghanistan."

Seems that I forgot to check where I was from...
