Photo travel planning

Hi Flickr Team! This is an idea how to improve the Flickr service and to create value add for people / photographers planning a photo trip: In addition to text comments and faves there should be another button which adds selected geo tagged images automatically to a map ( e.g. from Here) . After having finished adding several images to this background map the result is a gpx trail with all the individual selected images in addition. So it will be easy to plan a furture trip to the same locations other FLickr users have been before. Such a feature would be very important for me and I would pay for such a service, too. Would be great to get any feedack about this. Thanks all!

    Interesting idea.
    But basing on information from flickr we can have scattered photos on map.
    The problem is how flickr will draw a route between the photos?
    Stright line may be not so good.

    Some time ago I proposed such idea:
    I think it can help the idea, when we have gpx files uploaded by other users during their photo-trips.

    When I go to my map, the only pins I see are for the photos displayed in thumbnails across the bottom of the screen. As I scroll through that panel, pins appear and disappear. That's of VERY marginal value.

    What I had expected, and what I am now asking for, is that calling up the map and expanding it to show the whole planet would show a map with lots of pins all over the place ... everywhere I have tagged a photo's location. That's useful. Then, from there I can "drill down" by zooming in to a particular bit of the planet. Eventually I can select a specific pin and see the pictures from there.

    Perhaps all that is needed is a selector in the bottom that says to show pins for all photos in a collection, an album, your photostream, someone else's.

    Would love to see this added feature for flickr Places of interest pinpointed on a map with the photo/s embedded into the dot. Users can then click on dot to view the photo/s taken.

    Many photographers want to keep the secret place of their photos. The privacy of your best spot would be over.

    Great and innovative idea Metti! I would use it for sure. Think of all the Navigation devices for hiking- would be a very useful improvement!
