Another new feature for you today: Geo-Tagging (or "Maps" if you prefer).

Put simply, geo-tagging lets you locate your photos on a map. To geo-tag your photos, simply click the "MAP" button to the right of the photo (below the FAVE and EXIF buttons).

You'll then be taken to a map where you can drag the marker around. As soon as you release the marker, the location is saved. Zoom in to the map for greater accuracy when positioning the marker.

When browsing Fotonomy, any photos that have been geo-tagged will have the same MAP button next to them, so you can see exactly where they were taken.

You can also view a world map of geo-tagged photos:

These geographic features are still very much in development, but I wanted to release this now to give you a chance to tag your own photos.

So please take a few minutes to go through your archive and geotag everything you can. The more tagged photos we have, the easier it is for me to work out new and exciting ways to display the data.

Have fun!

Excellent. If you click on the world map link above (or 'Photo Map' in the Photos menu) you should be able to see my photos in the UK and some of ajft's in Australia and China (his photos have lat/long embedded in the metadata).
