Flickr Geotagging

Wasp ShadowFlickr now lets you place your photos on the map. See Flickr blog for details.

This means that if you’re interested in where I took a certain picture, you’ll probably be able to tell, since I plan to geotag many of my photos from now on. I won’t geotag photos where the location is unimportant.

I’ve gone and geotagged a number of my older photos, too. Look for the “map” link on the photo page (it will be on the right, and it will say something like “Taken in Rochester, MA (map).”

Or, you can check out my overall map of already-geotagged photos. It’s growing all the time! (Ironically, that wasp shadow is not on the map)

Knock yourself out.

I also have a new set called “Mental Pictures” which are photos chosen based on some unknown criteria. My own version of interestingness, I suppose. (Unironically, that wasp shadow is in Mental Pictures.)
