Photo Galaxy + Google Maps = Photo Maps!

May 22, 2006

Photo Galaxy has integrated Google Maps into their galleries to create the Photo Map. Photographers can GeoTag their images and they will appear as a small icon on the world map! Also, each photographer has their own personal photo map which is accessible through their private gallery. When you are looking at any photograph that is GeoTagged, a mini Photo Map is displayed next to it pinpointing the exact location the photographer was standing!

Checkout these examples:
