It would be nicer for iOS users if you also had the option to use Apple Maps. I had a chat with Joe Manier, who created the app. He told me he mostly takes pictures from his drone, and started compiling a list of good locations. He’s had more than 10, downloads, and while most of the abandoned locations are in the U.

Forgotten is is a pretty unique app and photographers should find it useful. Both apps look interesting but require in app purchases to make them fully useable. Neither seem available for Android but there are similar apps for people using that platform. If part of your passion is finding out of the way lonely, decaying locations for photography Forgotten is worth a serious look. If you love travel and photography, consider checking out our Photographing the World Series with Elia Locardi where we go to some of the most beautiful locations in the world and teach the process of creating world class landscape images.

This is cool, and at the same time I’m amused that this article is published at basically the same time as the «don’t publish coordinates of sensitive locations! In some ways I like that, I don’t think that FS has to have a singular editorial position on such, even if we consider these comparable concepts.

I had the same thought but I think there’s a difference of scale here. Hopefully these places won’t see the millions of visitors that the national parks have had to deal with. I’m more concerned about this app enabling trespassing and causing issues for property owners or photographers travelling on posted land and getting in trouble. I’m downloading it and checking it out but people have to remember to be aware of land use laws and courtesy wherever they go.

Yeah, it’s pretty safe to say there’s gong to be some trespassing issues. Just had an article yesterday about the sins of geo tagging and today we condone an ap that does just that. The author says looking for unique places how can they be that if everyone can find it on an app.

On the ThaiVisa Expat forum www. So far, around 20 pages are filled with pictures and related information. I signed up just for the fun of it. I didn’t expect to find any information for in and around Winnipeg and I didn’t. I did check on my old haunt, New Orleans, and found the abandoned Six Flags theme park. Too many fake loctaions from too many people using it to try to make money. This becomes «ego posting» whihc is not very useful. Home Gear Reviews Landscapes. Taking it on the Road: Location Scouting What Is Maps.

Musing Eye – December 13, This is cool, and at the same time I’m amused that this article is published at basically the same time as the «don’t publish coordinates of sensitive locations! Missing shingles and mangled gutters are also an indicator, but would require a bit more research on your part.

A top down look at a building may seem that it is overgrown, but often times it could just be trees casting their branches and leaves over the buildings. It is worth mentioning that on the contrary of large towns, smaller communities have had some of the best locations I have ever been to.

On Google Maps, check out your local rural communities. Often times there are dilapidated barns and old farm houses that can easily be identified from aerial view. Also keep your eyes out for odd shapes and anomalies in nature. For instance, perfect squares, triangles, and circles are uncommon shapes. Finding patterns or shapes could indicate there might have been human activity in that area.

Look closely at the picture below, does anything catch your eye? This is actually a flooded nuclear bunker located in a remote wooded area.

Note the near perfect square shape. You can see where the cave in occurred filling the tunnel and basin with water. Often times these projects were disguised as logging operations or other commercial activity. In rural areas, at least in the United States it is fairly common for families to keep their childhood home on their property and build a new house nearby. I have seen newer homes share property with homes built in the early s completely sealed like a time capsule.

These are personally my favorite finds. But do your homework! I have accidentally walked into hoarders homes, partially active factories, and completely occupied houses before.. I cannot stress this enough. Not having a correct understanding of the dangers and using the correct gear could literally kill you.

A superfund site is an area of land that is contaminated in some way, and deemed an environmental hazard by the EPA. The EPA usually reports the hazards and their plans to clean it up.

Some sites may still be active depending on their severity, and others will be permanently closed. The dangers range, and that is why I cannot stress enough that these places are not to be taken lightly. Not all places are abandoned so it requires some research. You can also get a solid understanding of what took place and what to protect yourself against while on site. A lot of the contamination will be heavy metal and ground water based, but bring proper equipment when entering hazardous areas.

I am not sure what will happen to this data or if it will be available after that time. This is a list of sites deemed to be a top clean up priority by the EPA. I personally have found abandoned chemical plants, power stations, and other miscellaneous sites this way.

There is a right and a wrong way to do this, so I will briefly cover how to properly reach out and learn about new locations. You can find new locations to explore, as well as make a few friends. After a lot of stumbling I came across a site called infiltration.

No matter what forum, Facebook group, or Instagram page you decide to follow or join, keep these few things in mind.. Introduce yourself and add value. Share places you have been, stories, and photos with the community. People are secretive about this hobby for a few reasons, one being that the more people know of a spot, the more likely it is to be resealed, or burned down. With the dawn of social media more and more people want to have the best photos and not share locations with others out of pure vanity.

Its sad, but a true fact of some people in the urban exploration community. To some this might seem like common sense, but a lot of buildings that are abandoned have wiki pages that literally give you coordinates as well as the buildings entire history and current status.

You can perform filtered searches on Wikipedia or other websites by using what are called search operators. For example site:wikipedia. You can do this with any site, and any keyword. Get creative and see what you can find. Once you find a page check the page for an address or GPS coordinates.

From there, click on the coordinates and it will direct you to several flavors of maps you can open the coordinates from. Lastly you can use Wiki to check the current state of the location. Chances are, a group of equally passionate people have compiled a list or map of old buildings, trains, military bases or whatever peaks their interest.

This is honestly a treasure trove of not only information, but history that is often recalled by people who used to work or live in these areas. For instance, I remember finding an old Nike military base in the woods.

I had no idea what it was until I asked a few other explorers.

 
 

 

Abandoned places Urbex near me with location – Abandoned World App

 

You do have to make sure the app is set to use your location. On iOS when you want directions, the app needs Google Maps. It would be nicer for iOS users if you also had the option to use Apple Maps.

For instance, I remember finding an old Nike military base in the woods. I had no idea what it was until I asked a few other explorers. Upon further research I found that nearly every single Nike missile base was listed and categorized online. Everything was documented. When it was opened, when it was closed, what types of missiles were housed there, and sometimes who was even stationed at these bases. Veterans exchanged stories about working at the missile bases during the cold war, describing what is was like to be there at that time.

It was amazing to see how close I was to other bases that were abandoned. Some sites were paved over, while others were converted into homes, or museums.

This database requires you to hold a realtor license in order to log in. It contains both commercial and residential properties that are on and off the market. You can sometimes find entire factories listed for millions of dollars that have just been sitting vacant. Set a Google Alert for a location that you think is going to get demolished or is going out of businesses. Use the search and find what you are more interested in nature or cultural objects, the collection is almost endless.

Plan trips or explores the world around you with like-minded Atlas Obscura members! Randonautica is a new twist on your adventures. Get completely random coordinates in a given radius you set.

You can open them on the usual map and create a route. Following the call of the unknown or not is your choice. The coordinates you get can also be visited virtually. This service will provide interesting facts and photos. Make a trip report and share your experience on social networks. These places have plenty of hazards that could cause injury, so look to bring the following.

Abandoned buildings have plenty of risks. With the right gear, you can minimize the risk of personal injury. The worst can still happen. You could hurt yourself badly enough that it might be difficult to get out of the building. This could occur through falling through floor boarding or getting bitten by a snake. The best protection against all of the above is to bring a friend.

Probably another photographer who also knows the risks. They can help should you get into trouble. It goes without saying that most buildings will be occupied. There are plenty of urbex photographers out there. One of the best ways of finding out about urbex locations is to visit places other urbex photographers have visited before. Online forums can help with this. You can also use the following sites that work as databases for urbex photographers.
