Flickr Places

FLICKR is in my top 10 most useful websites: perhaps I should do my Top 10 Websites in a future post...
A relatively new feature which people may not be aware of is the PLACES feature... This maps images that have been added to a map using the sites ORGANISE page.

Below are some examples that I have just done: I added some images of Scarborough (and also of Hunstanton) - see if you can find them...
Another search, this time for Rotherham, shows the way the PLACES pages look, and there is also a link to relevant groups. This will all lead to some excellent images for use in the classroom, which are often licensed for non-commercial use, with the correct attribution to the photographer.Have an explore and see what you come up with...
