Just logged in to Planeteye and I’m really amazed. According to an internal memo:
“Planeteye, puts geotagged photos – the attaching of geographical metadata to photos or content pieces, usually as latitude and longitude coordinates and data – into a map context. This lets the user see the geographical relationship of hotels, restaurants, and attractions, and allows the users to click deeper to get further information on them. As a result, the traveler is better prepared for the trip, said PlanetEye CEO Butch Langlois.”
On the left you can see the homepage, really clean and intuitive. Navigation is fast and it is already filled with lots of information.
If you want to upload pictures, you can upload your own pictures or you can link your Flickr account.
The geotagging is really easy as well, just drag and drop the photo on the map, add a description and you are done.
For every location, you can also look for hotels, restaurants and attractions. Again, really well done. One thing that would be helpful here is to link this with a service like Tripadvidor. When you choose a hotel, you can immediately show all restaurants and attractions in the neighborhood.
Summarized, this is a great tool.
