Mixing Google Maps & Flickr: 582 photos geotagged and counting.
Thanks to everyone who's tagged photos, I love you all :)
You can join in and add your own photos by following a couple of simple steps.
- Add three tags to your photo, "geo:lat=xx.xxxx", "geo:lon=xx.xxxx" and "geotagged", where xx.xxxx are the decimal format for it's lat and long position. Example "geo:lat=53.013", "geo:lon=-2.1756" & "geotagged"
- Fastest, in the description add a link to www.geobloggers.com (i.e. (<a href="http://www.geobloggers.com">geotagged</a>). From the photos own page (not the photo stream) click the link. geobloggers will automagically look up the photo you just came from and search the tags for the lat and long. Note: If the link doesn't seem to work wait a couple of minutes and try again. Sometimes it takes a short while for the lon/lat tags to appear in the XML data I get back from the flickr API.
- Slower, just wait. geobloggers picks up the RSS stream for all public photos tagged as "geotagged". It does this once every 5 mins, but the RSS feed itself is updated far less often (as far as I can tell). As it only holds the last 10 pictures, it's possible it'll miss some this way, I'll wrangle around this in the future.
- that's it.
