A new and exciting geographical dimension to photography has now appeared, and I'm indebted to Noel Jenkins for bringing it to my attention.
It allows the tagging of photos not only with the content of the photo, but also its geographical location.
Check out my picture of the Magpie Cafe, which was posted earlier.
It has a Geo Tagged label just underneath it. Clicking the link takes you to a GOOGLE map of the UK, with the photo located in its correct position.
For more on how to do this, check out the thread on SLN Geography

It takes a little time to follow the instructions produced by Steeev, but well worth it!
Check out for more information.
