geotag

I took a bunch of pictures on my morning hike and put them up on Flickr. I also brought along my GPS receiver and saved waypoints everytime I took a picture. Then, I added the coordinates in the Flickr tags and included a link to the Geobloggers website. They have a nifty tool that will extract latitude and logitude data from a referring page and display the location on a Google map. Sweet!

I am continually amazed at what can and is being done with free stuff online. I guess when you’re stuck behind a computer screen all day, “Why bother seeing the world for real?” [thanks emily]
