I knew setting up Coppermine to run my photo gallery would lead to tinkering, and browsing through the Coppermine forums brought me to a rather interesting hack – integrating your photos with Google Maps and Google Earth.
It’s fairly straightforward to configure, just time consuming (but well worth it!) to go through selecting the location on the map for each of your photos. Also, I’m now looking at breaking it down to provide maps only for certain albums, such as my Macbackpacking tour of Scotland, or our road trip planned for the summer.
So, be a little patient whilst all the data loads when selecting the first link to display the maps, and remember you’ll need Google Earth installed for the second link 😉
All credit to TranzNDance for these two excellent hacks. If you want to give this a go yourself, read through integrating with Google Maps and integrating with Google Earth from the Coppermine forums.
