By installing the greasemonkey script mentioned in Flickr: GeoTagging Flickr you get the capability to have google maps on the same page as flickr if the image has been geotagged.
I’ve changed my RSS feed this morning due to a couple of new features that Feedburner have released. They spent thursday adding new features to Feedburner to celebrate to their last day in their old office (most people would have spent the day moving furniture!) One of the features is the ability to geotag an RSS feed so the absoblogginlutely feedburner feed now has the general location from my zipcode added. I’m not sure which rss readers will use this information but I’m sure it won’t be long before aggregators start to add this functionality in. I’ve also removed my flickr feed from automatically being included as I don’t always want my flickr photos included in this website feed so you may want to subscribe to my flickr photos here
Since the API has been released, people have been busy producing kml files that you can load into google earth. You can add these bookmarks to GE and then browse geotagged photos from flickr (newest) and nearest or del.icio.us.
1) Go to http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=38.862577,-77.001771&spn=0.16,0.16
2) Click on “local search”
3) Enter “stupidity” in the search field and click “Search!” [via Glimpse of a Grrl]
The funny thing is that if you switch the search to idiot you get a funny result too. I’d love to know how they are working this one out as the number 2 result for stupidity near us is Ohio State University!
Well ok, some of them are. Using the instructions at Steve’s page I’ve now been able to locate the positions of photos taken on geoblogging.
Blogdigger can show recent posts by zipcode with mine highlighted with the link. The first post is one by Mike – way to go! Mine is nowhere to be seen though (yet). It has some new feeds that I’ve not come across, including one for OCLC and also has a feature to ignore a particular blogger if you don’t want their results.
Maybe I should start another category for this.. Now posted to a category called geoblogging.
Thanks to Research Buzz for the information on this one (a worthy subscribe if you are interested in the latest goings on in the search engine world (and not just google)

For some reason GeoURL thinks that Neil and myself are somewhere near Chicago!Update it now reckons my website is 299 miles away from itself – spooky!
Neil said he had geo-url’d his website,something I had seen a while ago, but hadn’t seen the method of getting co-ordinates for a UK address. Thanks to StreetMap I was able to get my longitude and latitude, put the tags in and GeoUrl myself
