Flickr Maps

Fiddling with Flickr, I saw this for the first time, although I'm sure it's been around for a while. Yet another great example of integrating a database and a map (others include OnOneMap for property search). Click on the map to go to the 'real' one at Flickr, then explore - the numbers in circles take you to the picture for that spot, and of course you can go off anywhere in the world for a look at which photos have been added. This does rely on the photo-taker adding a 'geotag' so it's not EVERY photo, just those where people have taken the extra step to map it. But it can only grow...

Now I suppose I have to geotag my own photos. Sigh.

I did go through a stage of geotagging my photos but in the end I got bored or didn't have time.

Considering I haven't correctly labelled most of my photos, the geotagging must come a distant second.

Same here, one of those projects for when I'm trapped in a luxury cabin with only a lptop and a broadband connection for company (along with the web site redesigns, the novel, the Christmas thankyou letters...). Hasn't happened yet, strangely enough...
