Geotagging is moving closer to center

In organizing photos, grotagging is slowly moving towards center — it is becoming a key organizing mechanism for organizing photos. I recently bought a real serious camera with built in GPS — the Nikon Coolpix P6000 — and it is well known that most phone cameras soon will have geotags — latitude and logitudes — available. Since time was already available on photos, this makes photos relate to ‘events’ very easy. Combine this with inverse mapping feature — ‘What’s here?’ — of Google maps and you now have a potent mechanism to organize your photos.

Flickr mobile uses geortagging to show you pictures taken at newby places — a real nice feature for many tourists.

    Technologies on GPS is very sophisticated and useful to the community including the mine. In my opinion, the presence of GPS technology, we can be much easier to find the path that we are looking for typewriting we are traveling.
