Earth Album

View lands far away and close to home without leaving your computer. Just click on a spot on the giant map and you'll see pictures other users have uploaded to photo-sharing service flickr displayed immediately. Since flickr and online mapping tools came out in the last few years, the number of these so-called "mashups" on the Web has grown considerably, but I liked Earth Album more than the myriad of other photos-on-a-map sites out there for its ease of use and elegant design. Just click to see pictures, or zoom in for more specific peeks into people's lives.
