Automatically Locate where a Mobile Picture Was Taken

Moblogging aka Mobile Weblogging means that you send a picture from your mobile phone per email to your weblog. A new cool technology allows to show a map of where the picture was taken, based on the position of the mobile phone while transferring the picture data.

For example, have a look at this picture on Nob’s Weblog and click on one of the “Location Map” links below the pic – and you will see a map of where the picture was taken.

It would be great if we could transfer the geographic positioning idea as a metaphor to build virtual neighbourhoods of knowledge showing a map of geographic locations where e.g. someone wrote a poem to his Weblog, recorded a lecture and sent the audio stream to his Weblog, etc. This is just an initial idea, I’ll think more about it.
