Smugmug combines photography and geography to create smugMaps

Smugmug Inc., an U.S. based photo sharing site, recently announced the launch of smugMaps – a feature that allows users to combine photos and maps with a click. Customers can enter an address for any photo or just click a spot on a map to link their pictures to any latitude and longitude on Earth. When friends visit their online albums, they click a map button to see stunning photos seamlessly integrated with scrollable, zoomable Google maps. Photo-geeks who use handheld GPS devices or GPS integrated cameras and camera phones to digitally tag their photos with precise location data will discover that Smugmug automatically reads it and instantly makes their photo galleries mappable.
