Panoramio is Google’s web service that lets you upload and share photos on the web. It determines the geographical location by geo tag in your photo, if your photo doesn’t have one, it lets you choose the location it was taken by dragging it on the map. All i wish Is google to have an app for panoramio for people to snap pictures on their mobile phone and upload it with their geo-coordinates. But till then the service looks good to get a quick glimpse about a location before getting there.
