Yahoo Real Estate new website and Flickr geotagging

There are two important news today. The first, Yahoo redesign his web site of Yahoo Real Estate that now incorporates an interactive map displaying home price data filtered by location price, and number of beds and baths: the new web site supports finding and listing a house researching the area (schools and community), finding a realtor, getting a mortgage (with local rates), and valuing your home. The second news is regards instead Flickr that allows you to add location information to your photos as is in a post in Flickr blog: finally you can have a geotagging for your photos by using the Yahoo maps you can simply signin to Flickr and choose “organize“. There are many discussions about this features in Flickr on Google Blogoscoped, Techcrunch, Lifehacker, Donwload Squad. From when Google has developed its service of maps they were born many services that use the geotagging, some 2.0 web apps thanks to the API and tools kit of Google and Yahoo have collected success very much.

Ci sono due importanti novità di oggi. La prima, è che Yahoo ha ridisegnato il suo sito web Yahoo Real Estate che ora incoropora nuove e più interattive mappe con i prezzi delle abitazioni filtrati a seconda della località, del numero di letti e dei sanitari: il nuovo sito web supporta la ricerca e l’elenco delle case a seconda dell’area geografica che visitiamo, trovando anche un agente immobiliare per un ipoteca (con tassi locali) o per valutare la vostra casa. La seconda novità riguarda invece Flickr e la possibilità di aggiungere informazioni geografiche alle vostre foto, come descritto su Flickr blog: finalmente sarà possibilità utilizzando le mappe di Yahoo semplicemente loggandosi nell’account di Flickr e selezionando “organize” geo-taggare le proprie foto. Discussioni su questa nuova funzione di Flickr sono presenti su Google Blogoscoped, Techcrunch, Lifehacker, Donwload Squad. Da quando Google ha sviluppato il suo servizio di Mappe sono nati molti servizi che usano il geotagging e applicazioni 2.0 hanno sfruttato le API ed i tools kit di Google e Yahoo diventando anche famosi.

  1. Neat application but with some “black” points. The geotagging feature is not open. More on

  4. can i post my church website on yahoo. nothing bad will be on it my name is belinda george.

  5. Flickr geotagging interface is brilliant, but Yahoo Maps coverage for most of the World is very poor. This is a important issue because Flickr’s geotagging interface is not designed for accuracy, but for massive geotagging, what it is perfect for some people, but not for others.

    If you prefer Google Maps for mapping your photos via drag and drop interface and you care about accuracy, our project, Panoramio, may be interesting for you. Btw, you can later watch the photos in Google Earth KML feed, a much better experience than web based maps.
