    if you get chance you should take a look at Blaise Aguera’s talk from TED this year. He showed how these types of photos are being integrated in to Bing maps from Flickr. In fact, you can try it out of you go to and click on Map Apps and then choose Streetside photos as an overlay.

    I think you’ll like it
