Panoramio -- Cool Photo/Mapping Site

Panoramio is a site that uses the extremely cool Google Maps function (you can actually see maps and satellite photos of the Earth using Google Maps) to create a link between people's uploaded pictures and the location that they were taken at.

I haven't yet found a way to make the site very accurate (I haven't been able to put separate IDs for pictures taken in Amman, Jordan versus Petra, Jordan for instance) and I'm not sure how it's going to work when there are thousands of pictures. But I'm still experimenting.

The possibilities for location scouting are huge.
