Flickr Geotagging

29 08 2006

FlickrBlog: “Flickr’s great for exploring photos by photographer, tag, time, text and group, and now it’s also great for exploring photos by place. There are a couple of short video tutorials (or ‘screencasts’) which give the 90 second overview on how to geotag your own photos and how to use all the controls for searching and exploring geotagged photos. Watching them first will give you all of the information you need to get up and running.”

Hey, this geotagging feature is cool! I’ve started going back to my photos and geotagging them all, which won’t take much as I don’t have a whole lot of photos on Flickr and the tagging interface is quite slick. I don’t actually agree with Ted: most of the time I tend to group all my photos in sets and most sets tend to be made up of pictures shots in a single place, so tagging it from the organizr is as simple as selecting a whole set and dropping it to the right place in one move.

It depends on how you shoot. Sets are easy, but I also have a lot of photos that were shot in random places throughout the course of a day.

Plus I have just about 1800 pictures….

Thanks for blogging this Ugo.
It looks very slick …… the only shame being that it uses Yahoo rather than Google maps (hardly surprising as Yahoo owns Flickr) but outside the US, Yahoo coverage is often very poor in comparison to Google.
I hope they publish the API soon and may favourite Geoblogging tool GMiF is updated to use it.
I also hope the new API is able to search by ‘proximity’.
