New Mexico Stories – Flickr and Yahoo! Maps Mashup

New Mexico Stories is a map-based Flickr mashup that we developed for the Museum of New Mexico Foundation. The Foundation is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the four museums and six historical state monuments that comprise the Museum of New Mexico.  

This mashup site is open to visitor-contributions and the photographs are drawn from a Flickr Group which is also called, New Mexico Stories.  The group is administered by the Foundation. I blogged about the planning process last October (see Planning for Social Sites).


New Mexico Stories  pulls geocoded images from Flickr and places them on a map of New Mexico. Images are divided by county, so the site should be able to easily hold thousands of images and remain, “navigable.” In addition, a Gallery view creates a random collage of 50 images from the collection.

The site has just become available and the Foundation will be formally announcing its release later this spring. Please let us know what you think, and if you have a New Mexico Story to share, please do.
