Flickr – What are your coordinates?

August 29, 2006

Flickr – the best photo sharing site is now ready to talk in terms of latitudes and longitudes says the flickr blog! Thats right flickr now supports geo-tagging! That is absolutely awesome! What is geotagging? Wikipedia has a detailed answer. The interface is pretty sweet (all ajax enabled) and you can drag multiple photos onto a location on a map and it will automatically geo tag it for you. The map is Yahoo Maps based and the searching could use some help. But overall its a step in the right direction and I give it a big thumbs up.

Here’s a screenshot – GeoTagging in action:
