Flickr Geotagging Roundup

The Flickr blog reports that 1.2 million photos were geotagged within the first 24 hours. (That’s half a percent of the total.) That post also talks about some of the behind-the-scenes search technology, admits that the maps (provided by Yahoo!, which owns Flickr) have their shortcomings (especially outside the U.S.), and announces the geo extensions to the Flickr API.

Thomas Hawk has a review (via Scoble).

Frank recommends Picasa and Google Earth for geotagging, and discusses some of the other options, but still likes Flickr’s map interface.

Update: I forgot to mention Richard’s take on Science Library Pad.
