Geotagging for landscape painters
I spend a lot of time driving around the Tuscan countryside every summer looking for great spots to paint.
An ongoing project of mine is to take a picture from every spot I find which I think is especially picturesque. The camera on my cellphone is set to automatically check the built-in gps system to see where I am in the world, and the phone is set to automatically upload my landscape photos to a Flickr set. Flickr can then parse the location data in the photo and place it on a map.
Another painter can then check my ‘landscape archive’ map on Flickr to see if any of the views interest them.
At the moment there are just a few practice shots up, but over the next couple months the map should fill up.
(The phone is a Nokia N82, if anyone was curious).
