I built this interactive shot map as a tool to plot the locations of local wildlife I’ve photographed. Along with my shot calendar, these help me remember the what/when/where, without having to dig through my Lightroom libraries and EXIF data. If it helps other photographers find subjects and locations to shoot, all the better.

At this early stage, I only have a few pins added, but my plan is to work backward through my Lightroom catalog and add anything relevant, as time and motivation allow. Like my journal in general and my shot calendar, it will be a perpetual work-in-progress.

The map is built using Map Hub; It’s a free, cloud-based service that’s simple to use and the resulting map can be embedded into any website. The link to my map is in the Journal sidebar, or click the button below:
