Flickr Map!!!!.gif

New Tool in Flickr. I just checked our photostream to see a link to "map" in the toolbar. The link lead nowhere but things are promising :)

    Interesting find. My toolbar certainly does not have that.
  • James Manners 9y

    Yeah i know, mine doesn't anymore either, it went away after a refresh...

    fuck, i just finished a small website to display flickr geotagged pictures at vetravel

    I hope they will at least store the geo data with the geotagged tag

    Expect the hits on this screenshot to shoot up, as you've been linked to by techcrunch
  • Ignacio Gutierrez 9y

    Very interesting.
  • Maulin Rao 9y

    I agree

    see the gap in source code it means they are not displaying a line which could be maps

    Looks exiting!

    Appeared also in my Organizr. For a few minutes I got a "ADMIN:Map" tab on top. I selected it and I got a world map like Google Maps. I managed to zoom to a region and drag some photos on the map, but the action was not completed.

    I love it! Bring it on!

    This is cool that Flickr will make it easier... I geotag now with Google Earth, but it is cumbersome... here is an example:

    Nice! Can't wait to have this available!
    But a question: I like your browser's skin... which one is it?

    I want geo-tag-by-tag as well. For example, if I have two tags, "Alexandria" and "Virginia", it should automatically geotag it to Alexandria, Virginia WITHOUT ME DOING ANYTHING.

    As long as it only works when you put a tag like "map by tags" or something to enable what Clint says, it would be nice, but mapping like that for all the tags in all the photos wouldn't work. I don't want a map of Virginia in photos where a girl named Virginia appears :D
  • Rev. Xanatos Satanicos Bombasticos (ClintJCL) 9y

    haha...... yes.. that is why I think some tags should be typed -- you say whehter it's a person, place, or thing. like person-Clint Jones, place-Virginia. I actually tag my photos like this locally (have been since 2001), and have a program that converts them to what I use in flickr (which would just be "Clint" and "Virginia").

    I would probaly write my program to add "map by tags" into every photo automatically, so I would probably still have the same problem with my friend Virginia... EXCEPT THAT -- I live in Virginia, so no problem there :)

    Interesting. I also notices this 'maps' link during the brief time it was visible. I also saw that someone had asked about it in the bugs forum, but that thread disappeared as mysteriously as the link itself. Very odd. I like maps and I'm looking forward to this feature.

    [ps: I found this screenshot in 'Explore']
