We power photo enhanced maps for websites and apps.

Our Story

CEO Mike Lanza started thinking deeply about the quality of life and aesthetics of neighborhoods when he created Playborhood, a movement to make vibrant and livable neighborhoods for children and their families. Then, one day in late 2015, he grew increasingly frustrated searching for an Airbnb for his family's vacation in Amsterdam.  He found thousands of photos showing the insides of hundreds of apartments, but he wasn't thinking of going to Amsterdam to stay inside an apartment - he wanted to be out and about in the neighborhood.  Airbnb failed to show him the ambiance and feel of the immediate surroundings of every apartment he was considering, so they lost a sale.

That's when the idea for Streetography was born.

By late 2016, we had a full fledged iOS app, closely followed by Desktop and Android support.

That's when we thought bigger - how could Streetography go beyond great photos of places to empower business users and organizations?

We answered the call of photographers, urban planners and travel companies by introducing our Premium tier - now, our fully customizable maps are facilitating photography contests, increasing conversions, providing curated neighborhood tours, and so much more. 

 We're proud to be the coolest thing that's happening to maps right now.
