View Full Version : "Where this photo was taken"
What about a link to local.live.com with a pushpin where there photo was taken?
I think it's fun to see where these photos were taken, like on my photoblog: www.uneventfulevents.com
I manually add/create the link each time, but it'd be nice to have a field in the "new photo" admin page with a place to put the URL.
Just a thought.

this could be an admin-Addon and there is a description how to write Addons like these, so it would not be too difficult to realise it if you can write php
otherwise maybe somebody of the witty people here can help you out.. and write an Addon like that.

Something similiar that I've got:
I don't have the images linked from the front page. It's run with an API key for Google maps and hosted locally on my site. Images are added with GPS coordinates and an XML file.

I am studying google API for google Earth and MAPs already as well
but my problem is, even that I have a garmin, unfortunately camera producers don't deliver cameras with GPS until now at available prices
and to run with GARMIN + 2 cameras + husband ;=) is too much equipment for me!
as there are already some books announced which will deal with programming and APIs for GPS, navigation etc., I see a lot of possibilities there
it was always my idea to populate maps with my images...
but in the moment I am populating galleries with my images, must finish the work for 2 exhibitions which will start in 3 weeks..

I just posted a new admin addon that may be of some use to you. You use a Google map on the admin side to actually set where pictures were taken; you don't need to know coordinates or any messy GPS stuff. Once you do that, it will show up on the map set up on the visitor's side. The thread about it is linked below, or try my Pixelpost link under that.
Hope that is of some use!
