Submission + - Beyond Mashups: The Future of Photo Mapping

Dr_Jones writes: Since the release of Google Maps, Mashups have become increasingly popular. Web sites like Flickr and Panoramio allow users to associate photos to a point on a map. However, both of these fail to show in which direction each photo was taken, limiting their real-world application. A new Web-based system called Mapwing provides a solution to this problem by enabling users to specify both the location and directional view of an image. Also, users have the option of placing their images on a custom drawn map instead of the traditional Google Map. The result is a birds eye view alongside a first-person walkthrough of a location. Here are several interesting examples to explore on the site: Apple's Campus, Rockefeller Center, and A Beach in France.
