Diigo Links 03/29/2007 – The GeoBlogging and GeoTagging Edition

This edition of Diigo Links relates to a project I will be working on with my wife who, as I have mentioned in previous posts, will be participating in a travel study to the Galapagos Islands this June. During her trip Michelle will be creating her own experiential journal, taking pictures and collecting geotag data via GPS on the locations they visit. This will be combined with a number of podcasts and other resources which will, hopefully, be the basis for an educational travelog highlighting the Galapagos Islands, Charles Darwin, evolution, geology and bio-diversity.

Enjoy and if you have any feedback or other useful links, please leave a comment below!

        • My colleague Cliff Pearson got me thinking about geotagging. My comment about his posts:
          “Cliff, loving the travelog! Keep the posts coming. Vasken told me about
          the G-map plug-in that you are using, can you send that my way? My wife
          will be going to the Galapagos Islands in June and I’m setting up a
          site for her which will include a Google map of the journey using GPS
          waypoints and geo-tagged images to recount the trip for her 7th grade
          class. This will be a huge help!”
