Welcome back after my vacations. This time nothing about Oracle, but about some idea that was in my mind for few years and now is life: Google Picasa has new functionality: putting pictures on maps. I'm using Picasa to share pictures with friends and family for more than year now. And often I was asked: where did you take this picture? Now I can tag pictures with Geo coordinates and then are shown on map. Take a look at my public galleries on picasa, especially latest one with some pictures from my vacations.
There are still some features that I would like to see;When playing with
google maps I would like to have option to show pictures from specific place.
Pictures from public galleries could be presented. There might be an copyright
issue, but it could be solved easily: users will have option to allow (or not)
to publish pictures this way.
And I must buy Camera with build in GPS receiver to simplify mapping pictures...
