Here’s a little something I noticed while wandering around the maps on flickr… either some people aren’t being terribly exact when they’re geo-tagging their pictures, or some data’s being lost somewhere along the way. There are a bunch of pictures that are obviously in the “wrong place.” This is a cool picture, for example, but it wasn’t taken at EPCOT. And this one‘s even titled Animal Kingdom at Disney, but on the map it shows up in Disney-MGM Studios instead. Some of the things I’m seeing are “errors” of only a mile or two, some are as much as five miles off.
It’s probably not a big deal for most people, but as computers are used more and more for photo-mapping and such, small errors add up.
