Mark Places

Map Creation

"Mark Place" is the core feature of exping, serving as the foundation for map creation.

In alignment with exping's product philosophy, we consider the "map" as a canvas, offering a unique platform for creative expression. We integrate "personalization" into the place marking, evolving from the initial option of choosing different emoji markers to the current capability of uploading any photo as a location marker. Users can even "add notes" to places, providing creators the freedom to casually annotate their impressions on the map.
