Peru: Sacred Mountains Interactive Maps with Yak Posts

Hi All,

My wife Joan and I are so pleased to see our daughter Mei with your kids.  At work, I spend most of my day working with geographic information systems (GIS) analyzing data spatially and making maps.  So I couldn’t help myself when I saw the Yak posts to map the locations of the photos.   The photos and Yak narratives do not have coordinates but I’m able to find most of the locations using the place names or other GIS resources.

I created this web app to record and share the mapping.  I hope you find it as much fun as I do in seeing where our kids are and the great experiences provided by Where There Be Dragons.  The name of the organization also drove me to make the maps!
