Dopplr is an online tool for frequent travelers. The idea is simple. You enter your travel details, city, dates, description and you can share that data with your fellow travelers and friends.
Adding a trip is easy. Just fill in the destination. You can use place names, airport codes or even postal codes, and Dopplr will try to figure out where youâ€™re going. The database of place names doesnâ€™t include everything, but itâ€™s quite comprehensive. Then click the start date of your trip. A calendar will pop up (or down) to let you select the day (2) you plan to arrive in the new place. Then fill in the finish date the same way and add an optional note describing why youâ€™re taking the trip. This note will be visible to people you share trips with.
You can update your travel data via text messages, twitter updates, email, facebook app and widgets.
In addition to also being able to subscribe using iCal or other calendar apps to your friendsâ€™ trips you can also automatically build your own travel carbon profile. Working with AMEE (â€The Worldâ€™s Energy Meterâ€) who are an impartial platform that work with many organisations that collect data or propose solutions, Dopplr notes your carbon footprint profile that youâ€™ll be able to eventually reuse with other services.
Dopplr is a great service and not just for frequent travelers. We can take long time to plan our trips and what better way to do this than by sharing it with your friends. You friends will know about your trips and maybe even join you because their travel dates do not clash with yours. You can leave tips for cities or tell other members what you thought about their tips. A really great traveling tool for anyone.
