London, United Kingdom (MAPVIVO.COM) 20th April, 2009
The launch today of MapVivo, a social travel experiences web site, enables travelers to bring their journeys to life by sharing images, text and video using a virtual map.
Inspired by a wall mounted pin map, MapVivo.com allows users to share journeys and travel experiences by placing ‘virtual pins’ on an on-line map together with text, images and video, providing a novel solution for sharing travel experiences with friends and family. Based on this approach the MapVivo team are creating a social platform on which they plan to build an exciting array of services for travelers.
As well as allowing users to create a unique travel journal, MapVivo.com allows travelers to capture and share information which can help other travelers plan ahead, meet up on the road, and exchange valuable tips and information. Whilst plenty of travel sites attempt to do this, the MapVivo team believes that nobody has developed a truly usable solution so far.
The concept was originally envisaged by MapVivo founder Mike Popielnicki while searching for a method to record and share journeys in place of his wall mounted pin map. Following a year of development and testing by a small team of web developers, MapVivo have recently secured outside investment and have ambitious future plans for the site.
Future bi-monthly releases of MapVivo will expand on its social features, improving integration with other social sites such as facebook, member messaging and group travel diaries. A mobile version of the platform is in the works, allowing real-time diary entries and travel information.
The current version of MapVivo is offered free of charge, with no plans to ever charge users for the service.

Originally launched in 2008 and revised and re-launched in April 2009, MapVivo enables users to create and share on-line travel journals by adding images, text and video to a virtual journey map. This unique approach forms the foundation of a long term plan to create an engaging travel community.
MapVivo is headquartered in London, and is staffed by founding members Tom, Mike, Wojtek, Mark and Paul. The company obtained long term investment funding in February 2009 and was incorporated in the same month.
