Here’s a nice example of a what photo albums will look like in the future.
Ron and Taylor’s Road Trip takes all of the photos taken during a road trip and puts them, through the magic of GPS, in exactly the right cartographic context. The first page all by itself tells a great story of where the trip went and what was seen. GPS-enhanced cameras seem like such an obvious idea to me, I’m surprised we haven’t seen more of them on the market. You’d never have to ask the question “Where was I and when did I this picture?” The next thing I want to know is exactly which way the camera was pointing. Then I want a back massage and strong drink. The wish list goes on from there, but I’ll leave it at that.
Be sure and click on the little satellite images on the right side of the page.
