Flickr Adds Geotagging

Flickr TaggingEver-popular online photo server Flickr has launched a sweet new Geotagging feature that takes advantage of locational data that you can put into your stream.

Check out this awesome map of DC with spots that show off some of the locations that have been photographed by all you DC shutter bugs! Great shots of the Capitol, of the monuments and Mall, of DC’s districts and wards all over town. Isn’t this awesome?

    If you prefer Google Maps instead of Yahoo Maps and the possibility of watching the geolocated photos in Google Earth through KML feed ( ), our project, Panoramio ( ), may be an alternative for you.

    Hope you like it,

    Sweet! I’ve been waiting for this. I was puzzled when I checked out the map and could not find my own geotagged photos, so I did a little investigating. If you have existing geotagged pics you need to “import” them into the flickr/yahoomaps database. Visit:
