PicTrax uses your Mobile phone or drone's location services to automatically pin your images

PicTrax loves destinations without a physical address. When you’re in remote locations, hiking, diving, 4×4 driving, strolling along a beach, or travelling in unfamiliar areas with few or no landmarks, it can be challenging to manually pinpoint an image.

When you have location services enabled (on your phone, drone, or Geo-location-enabled DSLR camera), PicTrax can access the image metadata and pin it to the recorded capture location on the map. This way, you and others can view your exciting travel discoveries in address-less or remote regions.

However, keep in mind that the accuracy of the pin depends on satellite signal strength and may not always be 100% precise. There are instances where the pin might not appear at all.

Please note that if the GPS metadata is unavailable for any reason, you can still manually pin the image to the capture location during the upload process! All images uploaded to PicTrax must be accurately pinned to their locations as much as possible. Images with inaccurate pins will be removed.

Enjoy the convenience of automatic pinning or manually selecting your capture location to showcase your travel experiences on PicTrax!

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!

Turn nuisance trespassers into a financial opportunity

While a field of wheat may not interest 98% of the population, it holds significant value for photographers, wedding photographers, film location scouts and Instagram influencers. With the property owner’s permission, a field of wheat can become a sought-after destination.

We understand that farmers, especially those cultivating highly photogenic crops like sunflowers, lavender, wheat, and many others, dislike people wandering onto their property without permission for photo opportunities.

By providing contact and booking details in image descriptions, individuals can directly reach out to you and gain access to the location after booking and paying for legal entry.

Uploading images taken from within the boundaries of private property without the capacity to pay or obtain permission for legal access is not permitted on PicTrax. We prioritise respectful and responsible photography practices.

Showcase your exclusive locations and ensure a fair and legal approach for everyone involved. Start exploring the potential today!

Manual

Map-pinning

No GPS metadata? You can manually search and pin your image to the correct location

If you’re using a digital or non-GPS DSLR camera, or if you choose not to enable your device’s location services, your image won’t contain GPS metadata (longitude and latitude) in the image info.

To pin an image with no GPS metadata, tap the “+” button and select the image from your phone’s gallery or file structure.

If the GPS metadata is missing, the map will show your current location, just in case you’re still nearby.

Use the search bar to look for a location, street address, or nearby landmark close to where you were. Pinch and zoom on the provided map to find the exact spot where the image was taken. Tap the capture location on the map to pin the image there.

This will pin the image to the location you selected on the globally shared interactive map. Others will then be able to find the location you pinned and explore it.

Even without GPS metadata, PicTrax gives you the ability to accurately place your images on the map. Enjoy a comprehensive and interactive travel experience that lets you share your amazing discoveries with others.

If your mobile or DSLR image doesn't contain metadata, search for the location, area, or close landmark and tap on the map to pin, during the upload process

You can even use this feature to find where you parked your car! Just take a pic of your car, upload it to PicTrax (private profile). When you’re ready to locate your car after a long day strolling along the beach, exploring the markets, or enjoying a festival, open the image in Detail View and tap the directions icon to send the GPS longitude and latitude to Google Maps.

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.

Create a new collection and save your own and other people's images to it

Personalise your travel itinerary by creating a collection and saving your own and other people’s images to it.

Tailor your travel experience by curating a collection of destinations that share a common theme. You can gather publicly published images, whether you uploaded them or not, and save them to your collection. By sharing your collection, you allow others with similar travel or destination interests to explore the amazing discoveries you’ve made.

For example, you can create a collection called ‘Best Waterfalls in the World’ and discover the locations of these breathtaking destinations on the interactive map.

To get started, tap on the user icon at the bottom right to access your profile. Under the collections tab, tap on the ‘create a collection’ button. Give your collection a name, add a description, and include relevant hashtags. When you come across an image or destination that fits your collection theme, simply go to Detail View and tap the bookmark icon. Then select the desired collection to add it to.

You can also edit your collection by tapping and holding an image to rearrange its position within the sequence or remove it from the collection altogether.

Feel free to reorder collection images to create a visually appealing collection feed, an ordered list based on preferences (from best to worst, nearest to furthest), or any other logic that suits your needs.

*Please note that deleting an image from a collection does not remove it from the app.

Publish and unpublish your collection

When you’ve curated a stunning collection and are eager to share it, just tap on the blue slide-out tab and select the globe icon with the ‘publish’ label in the menu panel.

This will make your collection public, allowing others to download it and embark on a journey to your recommended destinations.

If you wish to make your collection private again, simply tap the blue slide-out tab menu and choose ‘unpublish’. This action will remove your collection from the profiles of anyone who has saved it, though, so please consider this disruption before unpublishing!

Save Other PicTrax Users' Collections

Fancy someone else’s collection? Tap the blue slide-out tab on the right and click the bookmark icon to save the collection to your profile. Now you can access it whenever you’re ready to explore those destinations! Read More

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.

Create a private collection

Creating a private collection on PicTrax offers a range of benefits and functionalities. Here are a few examples:

Private Travel Itineraries: Use a private collection to gather and organise map-pinned destinations within a specific area, like Tasmania. This helps you visualise the concentration of desired sites in that region, allowing you to plan your travel itinerary effectively.

Accommodation Planning: By clustering map pins around a particular location, you can determine the optimal length of stay and plan your accommodation accordingly. This ensures you have accommodation close to your destinations and have enough time to explore the area and enjoy all the activities you have in mind.

Convenient GPS Coordination and Directions: When you’re ready to travel to your next destination, simply open your private collection, tap on the thumbnail of the desired location in the Detail View, and access directions directly to that specific place. This makes navigation and getting to your desired destinations a breeze.

Tracking Important Sites: Private collections can be useful for professionals and individuals who need to keep track of specific sites or areas. For example, a park ranger can create a private collection to monitor endangered bird or animal nesting sites, while a farmer can use it to track areas that require repairs on their property. Alernatively, a property developer may plot sites under development for navigation and planning. By taking photos and uploading them to a private collection, you can easily identify and locate these sites when needed.

Tracking Changes Over Time: Use privately pinned images to monitor and document changes in specific locations over time. This is particularly helpful for tracking erosion sites or any other environmental changes that may occur.

Additionally, private collections can be used for personal purposes like remembering where you parked your car or noting the entry point to a long beach. The flexibility of PicTrax’s private pins and collections allows you to tailor them to your unique needs and preferences.

Should you upload images to public or private?

When deciding whether to upload images to public or private, it’s important to consider the nature and intended audience of the images. Here are some guidelines to help you make an informed decision:

Public Upload: Publicly uploading an image means it will be visible to other users of the PicTrax platform. Public images are suitable for sharing travel experiences, showcasing destinations, and contributing to the community. They can be seen and appreciated by a wider audience.

Private Upload: If you prefer to keep your personal photos or sensitive information private, you can upload them to your “private profile.” Private images are not visible to other users and are meant for personal use or specific purposes. This allows you to track your own travels or store images that may not be suitable for public viewing.

Considerations for choosing public or private upload:

Personal Nature: If the image is of a personal nature, such as family moments or private events, it’s best to upload them as private to maintain privacy.

Sensitive Information: Images containing sensitive information, such as personal addresses, private property or confidential locations, should be uploaded as private to prevent unauthorised access attempts.

Appropriate Content: Assess whether the image and its location are appropriate for public viewing. Consider the impact and potential implications of sharing the image with others.

Platform Policies: Be aware of any platform policies or guidelines regarding image privacy. Some images may be subject to moderation or removal by app administrators.

Ultimately, the decision to upload images as public or private is up to you. PicTrax provides the flexibility to choose the appropriate visibility settings for your images. As the image uploader, you will have an ellipsis menu (three dots) in the top right corner of your image in detail view, that will allow you to make your image public or private, and you may also edit or delete the post.

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.

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.
