GPS-mapped moblogging in Japan

My friend Chris alerts us that his mates Kentaro and Tozaki (of Tokyo Picturesque fame) have just launched DuoSnap: photos sent from GPS-enabled mobile phone are mapped onto a satellite picture of Japan.

Most KDDI AU and the recent NTT DoCoMo FOMA 900i and 901i series mobile phones have a GPS chip embedded in them that insert GPS coordinates in the photos’ EXIF headers that are then extracted and used by DuoSnap to map the picture where it belongs.
