Earth Album – explore your planet


earthalbum Earth Album   explore your planet

Earth Album is a very simple and very effective mashup of Flickr and Google Earth. Just move the cursor around and you’ll be stabbed in the eye with gorgeous imagery from your chosen country or region. You can then refine your search using keywords to focus on a particular area. There’s also a Cooliris version if photo walls are your thing. Have a quick look, you won’t be disappointed.

Earth album is a simpler, slicker Flickr mash-up that allows you to explore some of the most stunning photos in the world courtesy of Google maps and Flickr. To begin your journey, just click somewhere on the map, e.g. “India”. Note– since the top Flickr images are used, the images change every few weeks; bookmark this site and check back for a different experience in a month!
