PicTrax: Share the Adventure!

Share & Discover Travel Through The Eyes of Other Explorers

Unbridled

Exploration

PicTrax is the ultimate travel companion that turns your photos of real-world places into a network of map-pinned travel experiences to inspire and delight a global audience. PicTrax utilises the GPS metadata in digital images to pinpoint their exact locations on a globally accessible map so you can easily share your favourite destinations, inspire fellow travellers, and be inspired to explore new destinations for yourself. PicTrax exposes unique, regional, address-less and lesser-known travel destinations, offering up new perspectives and opportunities for travellers through shared, searchable and navigatable experiences. PicTrax’s purpose is to contribute to enhancing the human experience through the sharing of adventures. PicTrax – Share the Adventure.

Yes! When you upload a destination image and someone else likes the image, you receive a credit. Credits accumulate and can be cashed in when you have reached AUD$20 or more.  You can check your tally in your profile interface.

Your data is safe. and your IP is protected. PicTrax does not use third-party device recognition software to serve ads, so your data is completely enclosed on our servers.

PicTrax relies on each device’s location services to accurately record the GPS longitude and latitude, so it is as accurate as the data that is provided. Each image uploaded, requires the user to acknowledge the map pin is correct, and allows the user to reposition the pinned image if the location is missing or incorrect.

PicTrax is a new platform and has many regions that require destination pinning. This means that this platform is particularly ripe for influencers to make a name for themselves, tagging remote and lesser-travelled destinations.

It depends on your usage. If you never plan to share a private collection of mapped destinations, you could happily use the free version ongoing. If you’d like to share or receive private collections of mapped images, the very inexpensive yearly subscription may be best for you.

No. The free version platform may present advertising from time to time, however the same advertising will be presented to all users – we do not use your data to present tailored advertising.

PicTrax requires the internet to present content. As content is changing frequently, internet or data is required to present fresh content.

PicTrax needs your location so it can present content near you. If the app can’t detect where you are, we can’t present destinations near you.

Share travel discoveries with Like-minded wanderers

PicTrax was created with the purpose of helping individuals uncover incredible sights and experiences that may have previously been unknown to them.

These discoveries can range from extraordinary dishes at unique restaurants to breathtaking mountain vistas, roadside produce stalls, off-road campsites, or thrilling 4×4 tracks. With the convenience of location or topic search and pre-set filters, you can easily find your dream destinations.

Connect with fellow adventurers and share your travel discoveries: PicTrax boasts an extensive collection of images pinned to their precise capture locations. These images encompass an unlimited range of attractions, from sea caves to dive sites, captivating street art, panoramic city views, picturesque tree-lined streets, wildlife encounters, enchanting wedding venues, photography hotspots, bustling market locations, vibrant displays of wildflowers, mesmerizing drone shots, and awe-inspiring landscapes. The possibilities are limitless.

Share your unique experience

With PicTrax, you can transform your travel memories into interactive mapped collections of visited destinations. Share your captivating travel discoveries by making your collection public, inviting others to explore alongside you.

Embark on Unforgettable Adventures

Connect with fellow travellers who share your niche travel interests. Explore or share whole collections of discoveries that perfectly align with your unique interests. With PicTrax, every adventure is tailored to you, because you create it.

Save and Share for Future Travel

Found a destination that inspires you? Save it to your collections for future travel plans. PicTrax keeps your travel dreams within reach, ready to be realised at the perfect time.

Share your travel route

Choose to share your travel experiences in real-time, keeping loved ones updated on your incredible journey. Alternatively, protect your travel privacy by pinning your destinations after leaving the area, so you cannot be found there by a follower.

Effortlessly Organise Your Travels

Effortlessly organise your past travels. Watch as your global travel adventures unfold and create a visual record of your extraordinary experiences across PicTrax's global interactive map!

Create collections of destinations under a common theme

Collections can be created to group destinations under a common theme or along a route – for instance ‘New Zealand West Coast Must Visit Destinations’, ‘Spectacular Wedding Locations in Regional NSW’, Amazing Dive Sites, QLD’s Top Rainforest Views’, ‘World’s Best Waterfalls’, ‘Chicago’s Best Night Spots’, ‘Painted Grain Silos of the Outback’ ‘World’s Must-See Street Art’, ‘Kim’s Ireland Landscape Photography Destinations’, ‘Banksy’s Around The World’ … any publicly accessible location-specific images can be save to a collection.

Collections can help people share niche travel passions that may not appeal to a large audience and therefore not be worth marketing to from a tourism perspective. Help people from train lovers to landscape photographers and regional road trippers find and travel to these niche destinations.

Help like-minded souls find the treasures you have found, show what can be found in regional or off-the-beaten-track destinations, and help worthy destinations gain visibility.

Share unique places and experiences that others are likely to discover when they visit those locations.

PicTrax is not designed for images of commonly found items like a McDonald’s burger or a barista-made coffee. However, if there’s something exceptional or distinctive about a place, it’s perfect for sharing on PicTrax. For instance, consider the extraordinary New Zealand lake-to-plate salmon fishing restaurant called ‘Hook,’ where you can catch a salmon in the breathtaking surroundings and have it expertly prepared and served by professional chefs. Since this experience is genuinely unique and tied to a specific location, PicTrax is the ideal platform to showcase it.

Let fellow travellers find and explore your remarkable travel discoveries and recommendations, ranging from extraordinary restaurants, vibrant nightclubs, captivating statues, intriguing museums, thrilling theme parks, well-known tourist destinations, picturesque public parks, breathtaking views, peculiarly shaped trees, and other remarkable sights and experiences that are specific to certain locations.

Share the magic of your travel adventures on PicTrax and help others uncover extraordinary places and experiences worth exploring!

Detail View - Get more information about the destination, accessibility, the photographer and the image

Spot a place that piques your interest? Tap on a thumbnail in the feed view to see its location on the map above.

Tap on the on-map icon to open Detail View, where you can like, comment, save, tap-to-go to the destination, or report the image.

You can also tap on the user profile image to explore all the uploading user’s images, read the image description, discover the destination’s accessibility and available activities, and view information about the capture device.

Use PicTrax search and filter to find your ideal destinations

Search Brisbane for street art or Victoria for painted silos. Search New Zealand for waterfalls, Tasmania for convict-built buildings, or Australia for caves.

Search results are filtered based on Most Recent, Near Me, Pix I Like, Surprise Me, My Pix, Most Popular, Following, or For Me.

Your feed will then be populated with your search results.

Information to help others on their travels - accurate description, accessibility and activity tagging

Not every travel destination is suitable for every traveler. Parents with young children may face challenges on rugged mountain trails. One breathtaking view in the Blue Mountains may have convenient parking and public restrooms nearby, while another may require climbing a perilous cliff to reach.

When you upload an image to PicTrax, you have the opportunity to provide information on accessibility options and activities using a set of icons. By tapping an icon, you can add one or more searchable hashtags to the post, helping others discover and assess the destination’s suitability for their travel plans. You can remove automatically applied hashtags and add additional ones as needed.

It’s important to consider the experiences of others with various physical and psychological considerations. Those with mobility restrictions can become frustrated when confronted with steep stairs blocking their path to the intended destination. Individuals with IBS may want to know if there are accessible bathroom facilities available. People with high sensitivity might struggle in noisy or crowded environments, while those seeking physically challenging experiences may look for places that test their agility.

By using accurate hashtags and descriptions, we can assist people in finding highly suitable, accessible, and enjoyable experiences that align with their specific needs and preferences.

As a UGC content generator, what's in it for you?

As a user-generated content generator, PicTrax offers several benefits:

Credit for Liked Images: We appreciate and support travellers who share their experiences. When other users like your images by tapping the heart icon in Detail View, you earn redeemable credits. The monetary value of these credits, denominated in AUD, can vary over time.

Cash In Credits: Once you accumulate $20.00 or more in credits, you can redeem them for cash. You can cash in your credits, up to $70 per transfer, through the website here.

Exposure for Professionals: If you’re a professional or semi-professional photographer, tour operator, or represent a regional destination, you can include your URL in the details of your uploaded images. This allows you to generate business and increase your exposure among our user base.

By providing these incentives, PicTrax encourages engagement, supports content creators, and fosters a community where travelers can showcase their experiences while potentially benefiting financially.

There are some types of images that are 'not permitted'

The capture location of images uploaded to PicTrax must be publicly accessible to others, whether paid or free access. PicTrax uploads cannot have been taken within private property, schools, homes, many official or government buildings etc.  Read More

We need to protect areas at risk from high traffic. Please do not post images of endangered animals, nesting sites, or delicate ecosystems to the public platform. On occasion a user, such as a park ranger may wish to pin an image of a location for ongoing monitoring or  return with monitoring equipment such as a trail-cam. These images may be safely  uploaded to the user’s  private profile.

If you see an image that is explicit, inaccurate for the location or otherwise inappropriate, tap on the reporting icon (exclamation alert triangle) to report it.

We are staunchly protective of human rights, particularly women and children. Exploitative material such as images of people working out in a gym, or children playing in a school playground that could expose places where certain people frequent will be removed from the app and may be reported to the authorities depending on the level of breach. The privacy of the individual must be protected. Read More

*It should be noted that images uploaded to ‘private’ are able to be seen by app administrators. Images deemed as inappropriate will be removed or disassociated with your account, and in extreme circumstances may be reported to the appropriate authorities.

Some other types of images that are not for PicTrax

PicTrax was made to help people find amazing sights and experiences that may or may not have a street address. These can include an incredible dish at a unique restaurant through to an incredible mountain view.

Not 'destinations'

Please do not upload images that are not connected to 'place', such as people without focus on the destination, or a sunset over an ocean that could have been captured from anywhere in the world

Private property

Do not upload images that have been taken from Private Property, including gyms, schools or homes. This is against PicTrax policy and measures have been taken to prevent PicTrax being used for stalking.

Unappealing, Utilitarian images

Yes you can use PicTrax to pin maintenance requirements, for that broken street sign, but this should be kept private. If unattractive, utilitarian images are published publicly, they will be forced private and ongoing misuse may result in your account being banned

Explicit images

Explicit images may be removed or reported to the relevant authorities

Inacurate images

Please pin images accurately. Inaccurate image pins will be removed and continued inaccurate pins may lead to your account being removed and or banned

PicTrax admin may make these images ‘private’, in order to protect the app’s ideal functionality of travel destination sharing. A sunset over a rocky outcrop is another matter, the rock formation makes the image destination-specific and therefore welcome…​

We are not tracking you!

Your personal privacy is very important to us. When you upload an image to PicTrax (publicly), it will because you are happy to share the location of your discovery with others around the world.

If you do not want this to happen, please upload your images to private, or simply do not upload your images to this platform!

Your ‘current location’ is used as an in-app function to help you find destinations ‘near you’ and to give you a starting point when uploading images without GPS metadata. It is used for these purposes only – there is no visibility of any user’s current location from any other user or by app administration, nor do we store or in any way utilise this data. We value and protect your privacy as much as we value and protect ours.

See our privacy policy here.
