Moblogging with Location Tagging

20 07 2006

An interesting innovation – only available in the USA on selected Nokia handsets at the moment, but with potential educational applications if it’s made more widely available.

Zonetag, a research product being dveloped by Yahoo, allows the user to upload photos to their Flickr account with automatic location-specific tagging, based on their current cellphone tower.

A related Social Web tool, Socialight (http://socialight.com/index) allows people to post location-specific notes using words, pictures and sounds.  A WAP version operates from a WAP-enabled phones, and a mobile application is available for Motorola iDEN mobile phones.
