After making a formal request for geotagging features1 on their GetSatisfaction pages, someone asked me how I got it done, so I created a (very sloppy) tutorial as a github gist. If you feel like getting some rather hacky geotagging features in your tumblog, this is one way to do it with google maps and plenty of time!
- You have to find your lat and long in decimal format in order to tag your post with a
geo:51;-1. This was very annoying when my iPhone doesn't really have this ability. (I used tweetie when it was offline, which posts the google map link of your position when you ask it to)
- Many of the posts I wrote in more than one place (long posts, written in the evening about a place I'd left, or about more than one place) which meant there was no obvious single location for the post.
And yes, Japan was amazing.
Import note: GetSatisfaction has gone offline, so this forml request has succumbed to link rot. ↩︎
