I went on a hike, took a bunch of geotagged pictures, and I want to upload them and have them displayed on a map. What photo sharing services support displaying imagines from a specific user's album on a map? Bonus points if a path (itinerary) can be drawn.
What I've tried so far:
- Flickr - works - see example. WARNING: doesn't read geolocation data from the EXIF header unless you go to the Flickr privacy and permissions settings and set "Hide your EXIF data" to
Noand also "Import EXIF location data" to
Yes, and "Who will be able to see your stuff on a map" to
anyone. Donwsides: torturous interface, uploads time out. Upsides: backed by Yahoo!, large community, 1TB free storage.
- Picasa - no maps, despite being owned by Google
- Panoramio (also owned by Google) - your photos must be approved to get on the map. Even then, I have 32 photos approved, but none show up on my map.
- Fotki - Reads EXIF GPS data but shows all of your photos on a map. Can't show a particular album. Also, you can't download the originals of your photos, apparently.
- Facebook - no maps
It's a bit puzzling that as of 2014, it's so hard to find a service like this, and that the major players don't seem to be offering one.
