One of the only knocks against Flickr’s new geotagging service has been the lack of detailed maps for non-U.S. locations. It’s good to see that they’re making progress on expanding the maps. When I saw that they recently added maps for Bora Bora I decided to upload my honeymoon photos from 5 years ago. Check them out on a map here.
One of the cool features of Flickr’s new geotagging service is the ability to do a date based filter on the area that you are focusing in on. For example, below is a map showing all of the photos in the NY area filtered on September 11, 2001. I was surprised to see that only 6 photos (as of today, 9/9/06) from that day have been geotagged on Flickr. See this map on Flickr.
Quite a few more photos have been added over the past couple of weeks (46 photos as of today), including a large number of photos from Flickr user *Hiro.
