If you have Google Earth installed, pressing the Google Earth button, then the Launch Google Earth button should be interesting...

The Cache

PhotoMap caches the searches it does against flickr etc. This may not always be what you want, especially if you've just added new pictures. Press Force Refresh to do a new search at the current location.

To completely clear the cache, either clear the browser cache, or go:
here and hit refresh (F5 on windows)
here and hit refresh.


After a bunch of testing I don't believe the way the map is implemented exposes any security risks (e.g. that Google may target this extension with their map API and try to gain access to local files). You may want to look at the source and decide for yourself. If you find a problem please let me know.


Running my other extension at the same time may be interesting. But disable it during upload, as the browser will hang.

Note that while the browser navigates to to retrieve the map, it doesn't actually hit this server, thanks to the magic of the browser cache.
