Geotagging at SFO Museum, Part 5 – Images

Title image for Geotagging at SFO Museum, Part 5 – Images

If the go-www-geotag application is designed to be agnotic to the details of any one user’s data sources how does it know where to find and load the images it’s meant to geotag? Isn’t this exactly the problem I described in the first post in this series, a scenario where the go-www-geotag application is required to know about an infinite number of image sources? Rather than trying to support a potentially infinite list of image sources we’ve decided to require the use of the oEmbed standard as the means by which images are identified and loaded in to the application.
