By the time you read this, I’ll be just about ready to go on a business trip with my wife to Paris! This will be the first time that either of us have been to Paris, and even though the trip does call for some business, we’ll still have a suitable amount of time with which to explore the city and absorb the culture. My wife and I have been doing some research on places to go, and instead of just researching the standard travel resources, it’s also nice to hear from the real and unfiltered travelers who can offer helpful advice. The problem with this approach is that even though these people may be able to offer suggestions by name, this information becomes cloudy if you can’t recognize where these places are located or where they are in relation to where you’ll be. Grapheety hopes to help fix this problem by allowing users to tag where they’ve been on a map.

Graffiti may not be accepted in cities, but Grapheety certainly is. Explore the map to find out what other people have said about certain places, and contribute your experiences for the betterment of the community. More than just simple markers, these tags allow users to write a description and include pictures of the location. To continue this dialog, interested observers can then post comments and questions. By the way, what’s with the hideous buttons and text input fields at the top of the page?
