mappr and mapping del.icio.us

mapping del.icio.us can now map based on purely descriptive locations. like the city names, countries, place nicknames. the diplomacy tag map has a few successful guesses. while it’s not spot on, the upshot is that there’s maps available right now from del.icio.us, without any explicit geocoding, and that’s cool.

this is possible due to the generous mappr api

this is the geo folksonomy thing in action. descriptive or explicit geo data is used, just whatever is available.
