Flickr and other photo-sharing sites welcome geolocation data, but Brazilian tree-blogger Juilana at Árvores Vivas demonstrates how to incorporate pictures of trees with detailed captions into the most widely used online mapping tools, Google maps and Google Earth, through Panoramio. Though photos may be browsed withion social groups, getting them onto Google maps and Google Earth is not automatic, as Panoramio’s Help page on the topic explains.
Needless to say, we strongly encourage tree lovers all over the world to give this a try. For inspiration — and just for general interest — here are Juliana’s photos. Click the link at the top of that page to view them on Google Earth, if you have the software on your computer.
