UK place name support for

Sep 26, 2006

Thanks to the excellent Geo-Names webservices you can now enter UK place names at worldinpictures.org1 to see photos from that location.

Previously I'd been relying on the Google geocoder which doesn't (yet) support the UK or a number of other countries, so photos from unsuppoted countries could only be viewed by entering a latitude/longitude (or post code for the UK). Now Geo-Names fills in the gaps so many more locations are supported.
