This site is for the people like me, who usually uses photocamera and GPS Navigator separately, but would like to have their photos geotagged on Flickr. Initially it was a simple tool for myself, but I decided to polish it a bit and share with everyone.

At the moment the site works only with Flickr, but it might support Google Picasa in future as well.

The development of this site required usage of Flickr API and Google Maps API. To reduce the number of queries for external API calls and server load an extensive caching (via memcached) was used. Also, whenever possible the logic was moved to client-side (jQuery).
