The Guardian Staycation Map#
The Guardian newspaper are asking readers to submit their photographs of vacations in the UK to a new Flickr group. Readers are asked to geo-tag their photographs when uploading the pictures to Flickr and the images will then appear on The Guardian's 'Staycation' Google Maps mashup.
The Guardian are using Google MyMaps to display the submitted photographs which means readers can view an embedded map on The Guardian website or view a larger version on the main Google Maps website.
