GeoTagging Photos WorldWide with MultiMap and Flickr

Ive written another Greasemonkey / GeoTagging / Flickr script. This script utilises multimap.com which currently has much better worldwide map coverage than maps.google.com

If you have either of my geotagging with google maps or the geotagging with streetmap.co.uk scripts installed and you wish to try this new script out, you should first disable them before trying out the new multimap.com script.

You can get the new script here:


To install this script you need Firefox + Greasemonkey to be installed.

The only major difference between this script and the older ones is when you click the "Add GeoTags" link on the flickr photo page, instead of being presented with an input box to enter the location data, you are instead redirected to the multimap.com site. When you get to the site, you should select the country you wish to search in and then enter the location data into the form, and from there locate the position that you would like to geotag the image with. Once you have pinpointed the location, just click the "Add GeoTags" link which should then be located beneath the map. And from there the procedure is the same as with the other GeoTagging scripts ive written.

As well as adding the geotags this script also adds a tag for the country name.

UPDATE 14/7/05 I've updated the script to fix a couple of bugs,
1) country names with more than one word in them are no longer split into separate tags for each word
2) the bug where the "add geotags" link wasnt showing up directly after doing a post/zipcode search, is now fixed too.

If you've got the old version of the script installed, you should reinstall it from the link above.

Here is a list of the main countries multimap.com covers:
Australia, Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Belgium, Belarus, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain & NI, Greece, Hungary, Republic of Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Norway, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United States

Thanks for your geotag script.

I am new to flickr, firefox and gresemonkey. Trying your js on multimap with firefox 1.5 and latest greasemonkey, the "Add GeoTags' on my flickr photo page doesn't link to Multimap page. I have just installed them. Why?

This doesnt seem to work with Firefox 1.5. I upgraded from Firefox 1.0.7 today but now these scripts dont work. What should I do ... or doe these need to be rewritten ?
