Today's Cool Site...
Explore the world, a picture at a time
What do you get when you combine digital photography and GPS? You get geotagging.
Geotagging embeds GPS coordinates in your photographs' metadata. That means you never need to guess where a photo was taken.
Geotagging really comes to life when used in tandem with a map. You can browse through photos based on location.
Earth Album is one site that combines geotagged photos and Google Maps. To get started, click an area on the map.
A roll of photos appears at the top of the screen. If you see an interesting thumbnail, just click it. A larger version of the photo will open.
Here's a hint. You can get more precise results by zooming in on the map. Just use the controls in the top-left corner of the page. Then click on the map.Earth Album uses the top images from Flickr. That means the photos change regularly. So, check back periodically for new pictures!
