Snap Map has long been a feature of the Snapchat app, allowing users to share their stories publicly and sorted by their location.

If you’ve ever used Snapchat and noticed a ‘share to our story’ option this is where it goes – after a moderation process by Snapchat – to be viewed by anyone around the world.

Panning around the map, you can pick any location in the world and see what people are sharing. It’s an amazing insight into things such as concerts, theme parks and major news events to the mundane like relaxing on a Sunday, going shopping and having a swim.

Point your map towards Orange however and you’ll see activity in the vicinity of Mount Canobolas.

While we can’t see the names of the people that uploaded these – for privacy reasons – they provide some fascinating insight into what it’s like on the mountain right now.

We will add any new footage as is uploaded.
