#Tip of the day from – how to create a live Flickr and tweet map

10,000 Words has a great guide for journalists to explain how to create a real-time geotagged Flickr map to show photos and the locations they were taken on a Google Map.

You can follow the same principle to allow you to add geolocated tweets.

A Flickr map has numerous applications from creating a report on a marathon, to covering demonstrations and protests, to showing parades and carnivals.

One beauty of this method is it allows reporters or readers to post photos by email rather than via apps.

This guide explains how it works: by checking your settings to allow email submissions, tagging photos and taking a geoFeed from your Flickr photostream page or your Flickr group page.
