Mapably serves and connects people like you who love to explore different cultures around the world. At Mapably we believe in human connection, curiosity and discovery; Learning about the world around us, beyond frontiers, beyond borders.
While most maps feature physical places such as hotels and restaurants, Mapably serves to show us primarily virtual spaces. From gastronomy blogs of a local chef in Madrid, to the website of a new Jazz band in Tokyo, Mapably serves as a place for users to learn about and connect with people around the world via the virtual world.
Mapably was established in 2013 for my final project in the Web Animation and Online Communication master at CICE in Madrid, Spain. I was a young twenty-something year old girl who loved to travel and learn about the world. When I couldn't travel due to money and time constraints while studying in Madrid, I thought of this website as an outlet to feed and inspire mine and anyone else's hungry traveling bug. My ultimate goal with Mapably is to inspire travel. I hope you find this project interesting and useful.
When I told Rafa the idea for Mapably, he was unhesitating in offering his help. In reality, he is the backbone behind the functionality of the project, running the database, server, and all that backend jazz. Apart from being awesome at programming, he is an avid world traveler, crypto guru, and enjoys developing his tennis skills when he's not crushing it at CrossFit. If you can't tell, he made me write this for him. He hopes you share this project and continue to come back. Mapably wouldn't be what it is without his help!
