and share your world
What do you DOT?
I DOT places when I go out or travel. Nice bars, restaurants, sights... It helps me remember, and my friends are always interested in tips. - Ines
I photograph graffiti, slogans, crazy messages, anything with lettering I come across in the city. You can see the pics on my Bruxellesafont Facebook page. It'll be fun to map my finds on DOT as well. - Sofie
Think of DOT as the sum of Google Maps and Twitter with
some extra fun on top. DOT is not about the world, it's about yoùr world, and that of your friends. This is how it works:
Add friends &
followers to your profile
Embed your DOT maps anywhere
Add comments, stories and pictures to your DOTs
DOT anyplace and anything you want
Search @people, @subjects and combinations
Every hashtag you use generates its own map
Get notifications when your DOTs get comments
Share DOTs on Facebook and Twitter
"DOT is a super fun way for social mapping among friends. Literally, you can place a DOT on a map and describe what the DOT is for all your friends also using the app. Like...a cool mural? Dot. Awesome restaurant? DOT. Nice gas station bathroom and you don’t even need to buy anything to use it? DOT. "
Gizmodo really liked DOT. Here's what they had to say:
It's your world and you'll map what you want to...
DOT is hashtag-based for total mapping freedom.
#artdeco #tattooparlour #writersgrave #huggabletree
Whether it's art déco, crime scenes, noodlebars or fashion that makes you tick, you can share your DOTs on your blog or website (via map.dotisfun.com)
Are you a blogger or a journalist? Do you have
a pet subject or a special interest?
Every one of your hashtags generates its own map. You can embed it with a few clicks, and it's automatically updated everytime you add a new DOT. Ofcourse you can also embed a map with àll your DOTS on different subjects.
