About Placecloud

Welcome to Placecloud.

Writers, artists and academics use Placecloud to mark unmarked places with viewpoints so that you can plan your microtravels.

Unmarked = places with no tourist infrastructure or even a commemorative plaque, but which nevertheless are significant in some way

Viewpoints = short, place-specific podcasts

Microtravel = the art of visiting the overlooked, walked-past, unmarked places that surround us. Your microtravels could be within your own city, or to another country. The ‘micro’ refers to the destination, not the distance

If you’re an academic researcher, writer or artist and have things to say about places, we encourage you to apply to join our fantastic community.
