Panoramio Geo Tagged Photo API

Learn about the Web Services standards REST and JSON by using Google Panoramio and just your web browser !

Using the Google Panoramio API you can display the photos from Panoramio on your own web site. Geolocated photos from Panoramio are great to enrich your maps or illustrate information where location is a important factor (real estate sites, hotels and vacation sites, routes & trails…).

Here's how you'd get some photos of London (X=~0,Y=~51)


http://www.panoramio.com/map/get_panoramas.php ? from=1 & to=16 & minx=-1 & miny=50 & maxx=1 & maxy=52 & size=small (just remove the spaces on either side of each "?" and "&" )

This REST call returns a JSON result set that you can view in your browser and cut and paste photo URLs from :

{"count": 42259,
 { "photo_id": 4337937, "photo_title": "Sir Tatton Sykes Monument", "photo_url": "http://www.panoramio.com/photo/4337937", "photo_file_url": "http://mw2.google.com/mw- panoramio/photos/medium/4337937.jpg", "longitude": -0.537515, "latitude": 54.042054, "width": 270, "height": 500, "upload_date": "31 August 2007", "owner_id": 278681, "owner_name":  "G3ZZP", "owner_url": "http://www.panoramio.com/user/278681" }
 { "photo_id": 51502, "photo_title": "eclipse", "photo_url": "http://www.panoramio.com/photo/51502", "photo_file_url": "http://mw2.google.com/mw-panoramio/photos/medium/51502.jpg",  "longitude": -0.121665, "latitude": 51.500969, "width": 500, "height": 375, "upload_date": "24 September 2006", "owner_id": 6645, "owner_name": "JesusVillalba", "owner_url":  "http://www.panoramio.com/user/6645" }

Yahoo! flickr & Yahoo! upcoming triple tagging

A short history of tagging

Tagging 1.0

  • just tags !

Tagging 2.0

  • geo tags ?

Tagging 3.0

  • triple tags or machine tags !

Yahoo! flickr & Yahoo! upcoming have now enabled triple tagging or machine tagging !

This allow your flickr photos to automatically appear on the upcoming event they were taken at if you use the correct triple tag or machine tag

For example if you want your Brighton Festival flickr photos to appear in the upcoming event just tag them with the tag upcoming:event=188114

Machine tags are sometimes called triple tags because they consist of three parts:

  • namespace i.e. upcoming
  • predicate i.e. event
  • value i.e. value
