Slide Map - Photos of the World on a Map of the World

Slide Map is a mashup of Flickr photos and a Yahoo map. Slide Map makes it easy to find images of countries and cities. To use Slide Map select a country from the drop down menus, when your selected country's map loads simply place your mouse over a tag on the map and images connected to that tag appear.

Applications for Education
Slide Map is a good resource for Geography teachers and students. Instead of relying on selected images in a book to examples of a coutnry's physical and human geography, you can quickly access an ever expanding collection of images on Slide Map.
