Well, everyone’s got to start somewhere!

I’ve just been trying out the new Flickr Geotagging capabilities, uploading photos of my recent wedding on the Isle of Mull, just off the west coast of Scotland. As countless people have said elsewhere, Flickr have got it pretty much spot on with this geotagging interface. Being able to drag and drop the photos is great- does it get more intuitive than that?

My only qualm is the quality of the mapping for the UK. It’s not as good as Google, showing only major roads and towns, and believe me there aren’t many of them on Mull…

Anyhow, this is a work in progress, and I want to investigate the different methods of getting the geotagged images into Google Maps/Earth as well.
