I have to confess I’d never heard of Schmap (basically a bunch of interactive city guides) until I got an email via Flickr asking permission to use one of my creative commons licensed photos (Schmap is Google Ad supported and the license doesn’t allow commercial use, so they needed to ask). Seems it got included. It’s hard to be excited or proud about that though when one wonders about the selection criteria. There’s the distinct feeling someone did a fairly broad search for whatever they could find, and didn’t necessarily take much notice of what they ended up with. For instance, not only is my photo probably not the best shot of St Nicholas Cathedral (the place it’s used to illustrate) but the photo used to illustrate the castle is actually of Ravensworth Castle… Ah well, there it is.
