Flickr Adds Geo Tagging

by , Comments

Techcrunch reports on the Flickr blog announcement that Flickr has added Geo Tagging to their feature set. Geo tagging will enable Flickr users to mark the pictures with geographic specific information, this way people can know where you took that photo. You can also search for photos within a specific location and then refine that search based on a keyword. Flickr has two very useful screencasts on (1) how to geotag your own photos and (2) searching and exploring geotagged photos. These are neat features, for sure, but I think they seriously need to work on making the registration easier sooner than later. Anyway, a lot more detail on this feature release at the Flickr Blog.

Postscript: Phil Bradley at his blog showed how Flickr Geo Maps don't work too well in the UK.
