Yahoo! Maps

Since Flickr added the ability to geo-tag photos by dropping them onto a map provided by Yahoo Maps I have been keenly updating my photos as best I can. The main limitation has been the level of detail available outside the US on their maps. Note the past tense. Whilst working on my honeymoon photos I spotted that whilst I was away they have been busy updating their maps. I don’t know how wide-spread the update is, but it certainly looks good for my local area, as well as where we were went on holiday – Lanzarote.

Although, Google still wins for level of detail in the satellite image for that particular area – here’s our hotel.

    That is good news. It was almost unusable before.
