Filmaps is a new film locations website that also uses Google Maps to show the locations of movies. Filmaps want to help movie fans find the locations in their favourite movies.
It is possible to search filmaps.com for a particular film or it is possible to search a location to see which film was made there. For example, a search for the Eiffel Tower reveals that four films in the filmaps database have used the famous landmark as a location.
Each film has its own Google Map. When you are browsing a film’s locations it is very easy to add another location if you know of one that hasn’t already been added. To do so you just press the ‘add a location’ button and complete a very short form.
On the other hand, if you have information that is missing from the site it is possible to put it forwards by means of the existing “Add a new movie” button. This way, if the place you live in is underrepresented you can set about rectifying the situation.
All in all, this new resource is bound to keep film lovers more than thrilled. If you deem yourself as one, a trip to this site is worth undertaking.
