Yahoo has come out with a new tool for incorporating Flickr and other regional tags into a mapping system, Yahoo TagMaps.

We’ve seen this with Flickr mashups in the past, but it’s nice to see that Yahoo is taking the extra step in incorporating these Maps full of Flickr Tags & Photos into their Trip Planner, publisher sites and other vertical services.

TagMaps is a toolkit to visualize text (well, tags) geographically on a map. Check out the sample applications [link below], where we use Flickr tags on a map to build a world exploration tool.

TagMaps is available(L) as a Flash component for your own website. The tags input to the visualization can be drawn from your own application - or use the data API(L) of one of our sample applications.
