Image Inspiration with Google Maps
DRIFT is a nice way to explore CC licensed photographs submitted to photo sharing sites such as Instagram and Twitpic.
Using DRIFT you can search for images by entering a search term or you can use the 'Show Map' option to search for images by location. This allows the user to search for specific images around locations, for example you can search for 'fashion' and then centre the Google Map on New York to find images tagged fashion that were taken in and around the Big Apple.
