Best Geotagging Site for Images?

C|net’s Stephen Shankland picks Flickr on top, but explains the pros and cons of a host of others.

The bottom line, which disappoints me (I don’t have a digital camera, so I’ve yet to play with such things):

But as with other aspects of geotagging, today’s cartographically clever Web sites are likely to appeal chiefly to enthusiasts who have some patience and technical abilities. Just like we’re not at the stage where most cameras can add a location stamp as easily as they can add a timestamp, we’re not yet at the stage where most folks are going to start with an online map when they want to share their photos or reminisce.

On a related note, the New York Times’ David Pogue picks out the latest geotagging tool for use when you take the pictures in his review of goodies from Comdex: PhotoFinder, from ATP Electronics. The price is right - $100 and it works with any camera with a memory card.  The challenge? You must remember to turn on and carry the device (basically a GPS receiver with a memory card slot) while you are snapping the photos.
