ZoneTag is a research prototype that aims to leverage the context available from cellular phones to create new experiences around media, and in particular, photographs. The name ZoneTag was inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1977 quote asserting that “Everything [in the world] exist to end up in a photograph”. Indeed, ZoneTag’s first tasks involve enabling users to capture, share, search (and find) as well as discover images from this excessively growing and accessible repository.
An early prototype release from ZoneTag is available from zonetag.research.yahoo.com. In this first release, for the Nokia Series 60 cameraphones platform, the application allows you to quickly and easily upload images from your camera phone to Flickr. The photos uploaded can be automatically annotated with the location (usually based on cell tower) in which they were taken.
This project is very similar to Radar.
