Google Maps + Flickr + YouTube = Earth Album


The innovations in video and image mashups continue! EarthAlbum comes alive as an innovative and interesting way to browse Flickr pics or YouTube vids using a Google Maps interface. To check it out view the Flickr or YouTube versions of the site. You can quickly change between the two via a link at the top right of the screen. To view pictures or videos, simply tap on a country to reveal a filmstrip view of the images and videos that are available for that country. Click on the thumbnail and the video starts playing right on the map. You never leave the map interface as you browse and view videos. You can filter by keyword or select "mountain, city or food" as some pre-selected word filters. Select food, then start grabbing at countries on the map. It makes for an interesting visual culinary journey!
