How to upload photos on the website

Adding a photo to a specific location through the website

On the Mapy.cz website select / search / click on the location to which you want to add a photo. It is crucial to select the correct location as it can represent a whole town, a specific street or a specific house in a street – or, for example, a monument or a church. The photo will appear in the specific location’s gallery.

Do not forget to supply your photos with optional data (date, name, description, the location from which you took the photo...).

More options for uploading photos from the website

You can also upload photos from your photo gallery or from any coordinate on the map. The process is very similar except for the first and second step, during which you need to select the location that the photo relates to (it will then appear in the gallery of this location). If you do not select any location, the photo will only appear on the Photographic map.
