What's this map for?
My Future Self may try to automatically 'geotag' some of your journal entries on a world map to indicate either:
- where you were when you wrote a diary entry, or
- the place you were writing about in your entry.
The reason your entries are geotagged is to make it possible for you explore your diary entries as pushpins on a map. For example, it should be possible to selectively read what you wrote when you traveled to a certain country. (Mapping features are still in development.)
Q: What if the map location for my entry is wrong?
A: No surprise there! My Future Self gets map coordinates wrong all the time. For the time being, please just ignore incorrect geolocations. Later on there will be a fun and efficient way for you to correct mislocated entries if you like.
Q: How does the automatic tagging work?
A: It depends. Sometimes your IP address is used to try to figure out where your computer connection was coming from when you wrote an entry. Other times, if you mention a city or country in your diary entry, My Future Self may attach your entry to that location.
