New Flickr Google fun

| 1 Comment

There's a new cool page, geobloggers, that links geo-tags to the google map.


You can join in and add your own photos by following a couple of simple steps.

Add three tags to your photo, “geo:lat=xx.xxxx”, “geo:lon=xx.xxxx” and “geotagged”, where xx.xxxx are the decimal format for it's lat and long position.
Example “geo:lat=41.892232”, “geo:lon=-87.646012” & “geotagged”
Fastest, in the description add a link to (i.e. (geotagged). From the photos own page (not the photo stream) click the link. geobloggers will automagically look up the photo you just came from and search the tags for the lat and long. Note: If the link doesn't seem to work wait a couple of minutes and try again. Sometimes it takes a short while for the lon/lat tags to appear in the XML data I get back from the flickr API.
Slower, just wait. geobloggers picks up the RSS stream for all public photos tagged as “geotagged”. It does this once every 5 mins, but the RSS feed itself is updated far less often (as far as I can tell). As it only holds the last 10 pictures, it's possible it'll miss some this way, I'll wrangle around this in the future.
that's it.

Eventually, there will be a zip code lookup at the page, until then, you can use geocoder.

I love me some 'internets'.......

These are the photos I've geotagged
