NCpedia contains short profiles about each of North Carolina’s one hundred counties. These profiles include basic demographic information and a brief overview of the county’s origins. http://ncpedia.org/geography/counties
We currently do not have photographs of scenery or interesting places in each county, however.
Do you have digital photographs of places in North Carolina? Do you use Flickr? Would you like your Flickr photos featured in NCpedia’s county profiles?
Contributing them is an easy two-step process!
First, let Flickr know you are okay with sharing your photos with us. To do this, go to the “Privacy & Permissions” settings on your account to make sure the answers to the following questions are as follows:
- “Allow others to share your stuff?” Yes
- “Allow your stuff to be added to a gallery?” Yes
- “Hide your stuff from public searches?” No
Second, add the following tags to the photos you would like to appear in NCpedia:
- the county name, as one word. For example: wakecounty, pendercounty, cravencounty
The photos that appear in NCpedia will link back to their originals in Flickr. So, NCpedia users will be able to find other images you have taken by following the link and viewing your photostream.
Naturally, we are only able to include images appropriate for all audiences.
Please spread the word if you know anyone who might be interested in helping to make NCpedia even better by sharing their North Carolina photographs!
