Dan Catt
Ex Senior Engineer for Flickr, now general gad-about and thinker, The Great Outdoors

Website | @revdancatt

Dan Catt, Senior Engineer for Flickr, has been interested in maps since the mid nineties, when he worked on a number of Kiosks and CD-ROMS for the National Parks of England and Wales. Mapping was put on the back burner for being too expensive in the UK, until Google launched their UK maps data early in 2005. Geobloggers.com was created with the aim of letting people share walks and experiences by placing Flickr photos onto the map using geotagging. Daniel created the first geotagged photo in March of 2005, by the end of the year there were over 100,000 geotagged images. He has worked with both pre and post official API Google Maps, Virtual Earth and pre beta Yahoo Maps, and can generally be found pushing the virtues of geoRSS as a way to share geo-data. Most recently, Dan helped create Flickr’s Places.

Follow along as Flickr takes something simple, geotagging, makes it nearly unfathomably complex by having an awful lot of it, sifts through it while trying not to make the databases cry (that's the trick), and presents it beautifully and elegantly. A behind-the-curtains peek at the fiery hoops we jump through. Read more.
