search cancel – Mashing Up Contents & More

Mapanno.comA visit to the Mappano website is a good idea in the event you wish to integrate media together and come up with some mashups to make your site or blog stand a cut above the rest. Essentially, the site provides a web-based service for creating visual content by mashing up images that are hosted on services such as Flickr or 23.


The website describes the whole process as creating a graphic or image that is covered with visual tags. This is carried out by the combination of standard web browser technology in order to create a dynamic html (or “dhtml”). In a certain sense, it could be said that Mappano is a complementary interface to the aforementioned free photo storage services that aims to let the user inject some elasticity into traditional web pages.

The advantages of such an approach are many, the most evident being that it redounds to a marked visual and interactive stimuli, and the fact that this solution can be put into practice even by those who have limited knowledge of web technology is a positive one indeed.

As a conclusion, if you have been looking into ways of having a more compelling page (IE, one that is more exciting to look at and navigate), maybe you should pay this site a visit. Since the service is provided for free and it is quite intuitive to use, you will be able to get started in no time at all. In Their Own Words
