DearREADERS,Unlike traditional “genealogy-to-map” integration software that provide a static result, MyHeritage PedigreeMap(tm) is highly interactive. Those lightening-fast computers at MyHeritage.com compare one’s online tree to known locations on Google Maps providing a zoomable and filterable set of map points along with indications of whose profile items are reflected on the map. But PedigreeMap(tm) isn’t just…
From MyHeritage blog:
We’re happy to announce the launch of PedigreeMap™, an innovative way to visualize your family history. PedigreeMap plots events from your family tree such as births, marriages, and deaths, as well as digital and scanned photos on an interactive world map.
Have you ever wondered how close your ancestors lived to one another? Where exactly your great-grandmother was born? Seeing significant events from your family’s past on a map allows you to gain a clearer picture of your family’s journey. Trace the locations of your ancestors and get new geographical and historical insights into your family history. You may suddenly realize that all of your grandparents come from a tiny region in Europe; or that your second cousins are actually your neighbors.
PedigreeMap displays all your photos and events grouped by country and location, allowing you to easily filter the map to view it by person, family group, event type, and time period. If you have a tablet device, such as an iPad or an Android tablet, PedigreeMap will look awesome on it. You will be able to pan and zoom with your fingers, and enjoy the maps tremendously.
