Photo Breadcrumbs

Lake Welch HDR, originally uploaded by Me (?).

I have started geotagging my Flickr photos when appropriate. It got me wondering if I could use the geotags to act as a breadcrumb trail to see where I had been.

So last night I knocked up a quick mashup between Flickr and Google maps to put markers on the map for each photo and then draw a line between each photo in order of date taken. You can then browse the trail to see where I have been. Great for virtual stalkers.

My [non-existent] javascript skills have failed me to do anything more advanced but maybe when I get some time I will be able to add 'next' and 'previous' buttons so you can 'walk' the path of photos.

See the breadcrumb trail.

Has anyone does this properly anywhere?
