search cancel – The Cities Of The World In Pictures

SlideMap.comFeel like traveling a little, yet either your budget or your schedule keeps you from that? If that happens to be the case, you know you can always count on the WWW to bring a little spark into your life – without straying away from your computer screen.


This website serves that exact purpose, as it mashes up photographs and images found on Flickr with Google Maps technology, presenting the results to you through a very flexible interface.

This system is also a truly interactive one is the sense that it can learn from your actions, and whenever a picture that should not have been displayed pop ups you can let the system learn from that situation and adjust its results from there on.

To sum it up, this mashup offers those who are bitten by wanderlust an opportunity to see the world from their comfort of their front rooms. It hardly beats packing your bags and heading off somewhere, but if you are somehow constricted it will keep you entertained. In Their Own Words

“Explore the world through Flickr geotagged images.”
