SkyDrive camera gallery now supports geo-tagging with Bing Maps


With SkyDrive’s picture gallery getting more exposure due to being used for twitter pictures, it behoves Microsoft to improve this public-facing view of the cloud property quite rapidly. reports that the SkyDrive cloud app has been bumped to Build 3004 which appears to bring support for the geo-tags which automatically accompany Windows Phone 7 pictures. The tags are displayed via a zoomable Bing map in the side bar.

Once one does zoom in it is scarily accurate, so it is fortunately that by default this information is not shared with the public.

LiveSide reports that the SkyDrive team is already hard at work on version 16.3 (Wave 5 Milestone 3) of SkyDrive which is expected to bring many other new features soon.
