Flicks


Last week Flickr started hosting videos. Flickr's video player is far more attractive than YouTube's and the videos that have been uploaded so far are of a far higher quality than the shaky phone shot clips that proliferate on Youtube.

As this site is all about video mapping it didn't take much of a stretch of the imagination to realise we needed a map of these videos. So here is our latest map - Flicks. Flicks uses the geotags associated with the Flickr videos to embed them on a Google Map at the location where they were shot.
