Mapping Geotagged Flickr Images

On Friday, had a link to an article by Steve Outing which suggested combining Google Maps with A9's storefront view. Andy's comment on the link: "someone please do this."

I've been thinking about a similar tool since I first learned about Flickr: Why not query Flickr for all geotagged images, and put pushpin-style links to them on top of a Google map?

As it turns out, Mikel Maron's done something awfully close to that already. It's a custom Flash-based map, and he grabs photos from Flickr using a combination of EXIF GPS data and explicit geotags to gather the photos. Sweet!
