Geotagging your photos – how good is your map?

August 30, 2006

Steve has a good point, the maps may not be as good as we’d like. In fact using a tool that Thomas Hawk points to we can compare Google vs Yahoo for a large shopping centre I use that has been open for around 2 years. Notice the buildings? Me either, although you can see some foundations on the Google map.

However what concerns me is how do I get the geotags out of Flickr (or Zooomr etc…) Well, here’s an interestng development :

Could we get a tool that extracts the data and brings it back into iPhoto? I wonder how – I don’t think iPhoto gets the Flickr image ID when uploading does it?
