Geotagged my Flickr photos!

with 4 comments

The best online photo sharing site out there, Flickr, announced a couple of days’ back that they are introducing geotagging for our photos. It has received excellent reviews from all and sundry, including the competitors, as reported by TechCruch. So, after reading that, I thought I would also indulge in some fun. And the end result is that most of my photos are now geotagged, and are available here. It is by no means perfect (the map for India is nowhere near as good as for the US or Europe), but something is better than nothing. Have fun exploring my geotagged photos.

As an aside, tell me Apple, doesn’t Flickr rock compared to anything else, including Google Picasa Web Albums? The answer is simple, it does! But I do hope that Google would get their act together at the earliest and provide an option to upload all the photos from Flickr to Picasa Web Albums ;). Because I think I have been Googleized beyond reprieve!!

  1. If you are soo Googleized ;) and you prefer using Google Maps than Yahoo Maps, our project Panoramio may be interesting.

    In Panoramio you can locate your photos via drag and drop interface using Google Maps. You also can watch the photos in Google Earth through KML feed.

    Hope you like it,

    geotagged – I was struggling to read and comprehend what that word meant first.
    Now I know its geo-tagged.

    Great stuff.

  3. Hello Eduardo,

    Thanks so much for the link to Panoramio. Initially I thought it was a spam comment, and so Googled about your site. From the looks of it, you guys have really pushed the envelope here. Great work! Will try it out soon.

    Regards,
    Proto.
