Flickr has been geo’d

Recovered from the Wayback Machine.

Flickr has introduced a new geo mapping service where you can drag your photos to a map (or provide longitude and latitude) and it will geotag the photos for you. The site has also added new search facilities that incorporates this capability. Millions have geotagged their photo, including 1.1 million photos of his cat from Danny Ayers (who, we think, we hope, was joking).

I had some questions out at the blog and the developer group and Stewart B. from Flickr was kind enough to respond in detail. I’m on deadline with the book (past really), but as soon as I get caught up, I want to try out a few things and then I’ll have a long writeup over at ScriptTeaser. Or maybe the new photo site.

Just a reminder, you can subscribe to all my stuff through Planet Powers.
