[prMac.com] Braunschweig, Germany - locr is a revolutionary geo tagging photo community, which offers the possibility of visualizing photos with the aid of digital maps. locr has specialized in travel-, geo photography and geotagging software solutions for PC, Mac, digital cameras and mobile phones. Within the community people from all over the world share their photos and learn more about surroundings of special places.
