Geotagging the world with Flickr, part II

With the release of Flickr’s geotagging, I wanted to revisit the topic of personal maps.

Now that people can geotag pictures, I want the ability to use that data on my maps. If I’m on Google Maps and pull up a map for San Francisco, I want to be able to automatically pull in images from my Flickr account as well as the images of friends and family that I subscribe to.

When I’m planning on a trip, I could easily see who among my buddies has been there.

With Flickr’s Geo APIs, it’s only a matter of time.
