This is a image from Eric Fischer that he has made that shows Brisbane as a wireframe with blue, yellow and red dots on it that represent all the geo tagged photos on Flickr. This is a really good map if you are looking for somewhere interesting to take photos or for some where that people have not taken any photos before.
I am going to call this sort of image “meta” art.

Blue pictures are by locals. Red pictures are by tourists. Yellow pictures might be by either
Microsoft Bing Maps have just demoed the new mapping feature at TED. This is really cutting edge mapping technology that is shown off some awesome 3D views integrated with street side view and it shows the integration of Flickr photos and real time live video.
Now if we could just get this sort of map integration with Windows Phone 7….
A few months ago Microsoft launched street side view (similar to Google street view). Now Bing maps have just recently released an update that integrates Flickr photos into the street side view. This uses the photo matching software of Photosynth to match any creative common geo-tagged photo on Flickr. This is truly an amazing feature and i just cant wait for this to go live in Australia.
