Most of my use of Yahoo’s photosharing application, Flickr, involves posting images from patent applications, so that I can show them here. But I put some photographs on Flickr too, and I’ve even geo-tagged a few of them by dragging them to the location where the shots were taken on a map.
Yahoo has another application that works with Flickr, called ZoneTag, that allows you to take a picture with your phone, and upload it immediately to Flickr, with tags associated with the location. My phone doesn’t support it, so I haven’t tried. But it’s interesting.
What kinds of things might be possible with all of these images on Flickr that have locations attached to them?
I’ve gathered a number of links to recent papers and pages involving Flickr and tagging that describe some of the possibilities.
