Google Map of the World's Art


GeocodedArt is a new website that is busy mapping the world's fine art paintings. The geocodedArt database contains over 1,000 images of identifiable places all over the world.

The images are organized and displayed using Google Maps and Bing Maps and are cross-indexed by artist. It is possible to search the database by artist name, painting name or by location.

This is a great way of exploring the world's art. Hint - I'd really like a mobile phone application of this to show you paintings of views that are near your current location.
