Explore / Places

The Places project is our way of saying thank you to all our members who’ve taken the time to put their gorgeous photos and video on the map. Browse the whole globe, from your hometown to your favorite place, or places you’ve never even heard of...

How do I?

When you upload to Flickr, you can add your photos and video to a map using Organizr.

Open up the Map tab, find the place you took the photo, or shot the video - either by searching for an address, or dragging and zooming the map around - and then drop your photo on the place you took it. Easy!

What's next?

We like to think of Places as a 'page on Flickr for every place in the world.'

As you stick more and more photos and video on to the world, these Places will become richer and much more interesting. This spurs us on to keep making them better, and to show you fresher, nearly-live content from Zambia to Nova Scotia.

Are you nerdy?

That's nothing to be ashamed of.

There are some nerdy groups on Flickr you might be interested to visit: try the Geotagging group, the Flickr API group, or Flickr Hacks.
