On his brand new blog (check it out it’s rather good) Charles Frith has just posted about Flickrvision, a mash-up of Google Maps with Flickr. Created by the same guy that came up with Twittervision, the Flickr version uses geo-tags to show photos appearing around the world in real time.
Amazing how it simultaneously gives a visual description of the intensity and insignificance of our geographically and culturally driven differences. And very like Twittervision it’s strangely addictive, only more so, because it’s visual. As Charles points out, the potential applications of these data streams, particularly around geo-tagging, are truly exciting (if a little geeky). I love it.
