Less-than-elegant geo-blogging

Test mobile blog. 35.61063 82.44058

Here is a cumbersome version of a technique that we are hoping to make much more simple in the future: a photo blog posted directly from a cell phone and georeferenced on a map or 3D globe. I took the picture on the left with a cell phone camera, then recorded my geographic location using a GPS unit and entered it as text for the blog. The photo and lat/long coordinates above were posted directly via cell phone, and this text was added later once I had access to a computer. I entered the coordinates into Google Earth and created the snapshot on the right. This is one of the projects that the GIS Crew (hopefully in conjunction with some students in a computer science class) will be working on in the coming months.
