Finding Nearby Places to Visit

Panoramap is a neat way to search for interesting places to visit around your immediate location. The map shows the locations of the hundreds of thousands of photographs submitted to Wikimedia during the annual Wiki Loves Monuments contests.

Wiki Loves Monuments is an international photo contest for monuments, organized by Wikimedia. If you click on a marker on the map you can view the Wikimedia photo of the marked monument and click through to read all about it on Wikipedia.

To view the monuments around a location simply pan and zoom the map and click the '?' icon. This will load markers displaying all the Wikimedia listed monuments in the current map view.
