Geotagging on Flickr

I love Flickr big time. I spend quite a bit time there browsing through photos, adding favorites, uploading pictures to groups, and more. By far, though, the coolest thing I've found seen on the site is when people geotagged their photos.

Following these very simple instructions you can add geotags to your own images which then will plot your photos on a Google map, allowing you to see who's taken pictures at nearby locations, in essence, creating a virtual tour through these photos. This is especially cool in places like New York City and Las Vegas.

I've only tagged around forty of my own pictures right now, but you can see them here. So far I've got photos in Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and New York. I'd have some in New Jersey, but I can't find the damn address for the Secaucus train station.

Here I've been thinking it that it must be so hard to get your latitude and longitude onto a photo, but with these scripts, it literally only takes a minute.

If you geotag any of your photos, let me know! I'd love to check out your map.
