All the houses I have lived in

March 20, 2009


It’s Friday evening and I’m bored, so I’ve just spent 20 minutes or so browsing round Google Maps finding satellite pictures of all the houses I have ever lived in.

Well, not quite all. There’s actually one missing because I can’t remember the house number, and the area isn’t covered by street view yet so I can’t use that to jog my memory.

Geolocated photos with Google Earth

January 26, 2007

I recently installed the latest version of Google Earth and found that it has a new feature where you can upload your photos via Panoramio and have them displayed in Google Earth at the position where they were taken.

I’ve uploaded a couple of my recent pictures from Gokoku Jinja and Mount Aso but they haven’t appeared on Google Earth yet. I imagine they’re moderating the incoming photos pretty hard to prevent it from becoming too cluttered.

The photos can be forced onto the display by going to my profile page and loading the KML file into Google Earth.
