WordPress plugin that displays a “location taken map” for all embedded Flickr photos that contain coordinates.
For every photo in a wordpress post/page that is hosted on Flickr, this plugin adds a small red balloon in the top left corner when the mouse is hovering over the photo. If the photo is geotagged on Flickr, a click on the balloon displays a pop-up featuring a Google Satellite map of the surroundings.
Thanks to Tarique Sani, author of the Flickr foto info plugin, no longer maintained and not working anymore, on which geoFlickr is based.
- very discrete overlay on the image
- jQuery and thickbox
- Most calls to the Flickr API are done on the client side – so there is minimal additional load or delay on the server
- If your photo has geo-location data embedded, shows it as a marker on Google map with reverse geo-location to fetch the place name
- HTTPS compatible
- To configure plugin, go to ‘Settings’ -> ‘geoFlickr’ from the WordPress dashboard
- Enter your flickr API key. The key can be obtained for free by visiting https://www.flickr.com/services/apps/
- Enter your Google Maps API key. The key can be set up, for free up to a certain threshold, via https://console.cloud.google.com/google/maps-apis/ by following https://support.google.com/googleapi/answer/6158862
There is nothing to do. Any post or page that has a photo from Flickr embedded will diplay a red balloon when hovering the mouse on the photo. The balloon will show only if the image has EXIF GPS coordinates on Flickr.
A click on that balloon will show the map inside a Thickbox popup.
Thanks to tariquesani who developped Flickr foto info up to v1.4, up to WP3.5.2, until 2014
