adding a map

  1. Dear all,
    I would like to connect my photos of buildings from the first half of the 20th century in Europe to my website. Yes, I do not want to upload tons of photos on my website, but instead use a photo storage site and link them.
    Since I do not have equaly descriptive text for the buildings and in an age when everything digital is promoted, I think that a database on the web would be a great thing.
    Recently I've seen that Imaggeo (net) supports adding an address to your photo, and a small map appears. I think it is a great feature, as I would also like to see my photos of buildings located. However, Imaggeo is for geoimages, not for buildings.
    Do you know of a similar site for buildings?
    thank you
  2. Have you looked at Google maps? It's quite flexible to handle any geospatial information, all you need is latitude and longitude for locations, and any good map application will do that if you know where the building is located. I use Google maps on my Mt. Rainier NP photo guide (see any link with "map") for a lot of site information. It does take time to learn to get your base map(s) into Google and how to embed the Google code into the html code or attach it as an external xml file. You can embed links or photos into the window for each site along with information. There are some third party applications which will do that easier.
