Flickr Places

Flickr have recently added a neat new variation onto their explore pages called Flickr Places.

The idea is relatively simple in that it is wrapping the place search that gets used when placing your pictures onto a map into a much simpler interface. Given a place name, it then goes away and builds a page using any of the geotagged pictures, and comes up with a page containing all those that are in the relevant place.

Of course, it is entirely dependant on people religiously geotagging all their pictures, otherwise you get results like the Finchampstead page which seems to entirely consist of my pictures…
