Place your photos in meat-world

NextWeb – Startup pitches round 3 (Day 2)

Have a box of old photographs of people in places no one can remember? Viewfinder is a new project designed to “place” photos in the geographical location they were taken in less than a minute. While this might seem really nice to “place” Grammy in Times Square in 1972 it’s also a great way to “place” Osama Bin Laden next to a tree in Outer Burri Burri, which I suspect is the real reason this project is being put together. The system matches landmarks to real topographical, 3-D maps of the world and, in the case of Google Earth, zooms you into that location. In the case of a Predator drone, however, the service zooms a Hellfire missile straight to that location.
