I knew it was coming… but still, it’s incredibly exciting now that someone has done it. They’ve combined the photo-sharing goodness of Flickr with the mapping goodness of Google Maps. The result is Geobloggers.
Basically, you can “tag” your Flickr photos with the latitude and longitude where the photo was taken, and the photo will be displayed as a push pin on a Flickr/Google Maps combo. The icing on the cake is the awesome Greasemonkey script(s) that make it really simple to add these latitude and longitude tags to your photos. How easy? Watch.
The whole process takes 10 to 15 seconds. I can’t wait to see what cool uses people find for this. This is practically begging for someone to use it to document a nationwide road trip.
