GeoTagging With MulitMap & Flickr

STEEEV, the wonderguy of geoblogging and tagging, has posted a few scripts to help us all out with our Google Map and Streetmap hacks. Which reminds me I have some items on my list:

1) Get off my duff and relearn all the code I have forgot in the past two years. (Pimpin' Maps is fun, but not that fun.)

2) Actually write a map hack.

3) Implement a plan for my office to build off of what all of the cool things that STEEEV & Co. have been doing to make the world a better place.

Photo By SteeevI've written another couple of Greasemonkey / GeoTagging / Flickr scripts. This pair of scripts utilise multimap.com which has much better worldwide map coverage than maps.google.com

If you have either the geotagging with google maps, or the geotagging with streetmap.co.uk scripts installed and you wish to try these new scripts out, you should first disable them before trying out the new multimap.com scripts.

You can get the new scripts here:

geotag.multimap.user.js & geotag.flickr.multimap.user.js

To install these scripts you need Firefox + Greasemonkey to be installed.

The only major difference between these scripts and the older ones is when you click the "Add GeoTags" link on the flickr photo page, instead of being presented with an input box to enter the location data, you are instead redirected to the multimap.com site. When you get to the site, you should select the country you wish to search in and then enter the location data into the form, and from there locate the position that you would like to geotag the image with. Once you have pinpointed the location, just click the "Add GeoTags" link which should then be located beneath the map. And from there the procedure is the same as with the other GeoTagging scripts ive written.

BTW This script also adds a tag for the country name.
