Geotagging and Pictures (and a world record!)

I’ve added a few nice features in the latest J2memap release (v0.9, not yet you): the ability to take some pictures, and to upload them directly to Flickr with some geotagged flags thanks to the mobup classe
The other day, I was in the french fast train, and make probably the record of the fastest geotaged and uploaded picture in real time, at 300 kmh! I forgot to switch on full size, so quality is quite bad, but it got the position on the map, as well as the snapshot of J2memap who include some nice icons once the picture has been geottaged: it’s quite easy, just take a picture, and it will be send to Flickr using your current GPS position.
Here are a few screenshots:

The picture in Flickr (ok, the resolution is really to small)

The screen of the mobile (yes, TGV was not at 300 km/h at that time, only 295…)

the result on the great tool yuan.cc:

I like this one, as it a real good example of mashing up different tools, googlemap, flickr, yuan.cc, j2memap, and a little bit of mobup… No real usage yet (who knows? ;-) ), but fun!

Geotagging with mobile is in the air, Martin is doing some experiment too, look at it…Technorati Tags:
