As of this week, adding a Google map, or even better, your Google “MyMaps”, to your webpage is a snap (pardon the pun). You know how simple it is to embed a youTube video into your blog? Well, it’s that simple. Here’s a short tutorial to show you how simple it actually is. We’ll create a custom google MyMap, add a Mapplet, embed some photos from our flickr account, save the map, and embed it within a website (in this article)… no problemmo! To finish I’ll offer up a couple of photo geotagging tools for those of you with GPS-enabled cell phones and a tool for mannual geotagging for those with no access to GPS. If you enjoy Google maps, flickr, and geotagging photos then this tutorial is for you.
Wow, just stumbled onto an awesome flickr slideshow tool… you know that I’m a flickr fanatic, however, I didn’t know about this app so I hope you enjoy as much as I do… this one will be really handy so be sure to bookmark this post! FlickrSlidr allows users to easily and quickly embed a flickr slideshow into your website(or blog). Alter the size, the flickr set to display, and then mess with the speed. See below for a slideshow of my 2007 ESRI User Conference photos.. enjoy!
