I am testing an ESRI ArcGIS online map application called Public. It claims to display social media content from Flickr in a map interface. I have tagged the photos and set the map to search for the tags within the map's extent.
I have uploaded an image to Flickr tagged with the desired term. I made sure the pic is set to public and turned the geo info on.
Any ideas why my pic will not display?
I gave it a quick shot, and I can't get it to show a photo I added either... however, I also can't find it when I am not signed into flickr at flickr itself. I set it public, it has a location not sure why it can't be found with Flickr search.
Start by trying to find your photo at Flickr - Flickr Search
Also, I notice if I can find the photo here Flickr: Explore everyone's photos on a Map I can find it in the public map as well. My picture doesn't appear to be find-able either.
I appreciate the Flickr Search suggestion. I searched on the tag I specified and my photo appears even if I am not signed into Flickr.
In the AGO Public App I deleted my tag terms and both Flickr and Twitter posts appear in the map area(user must sign into twitter account for tweets to appear).
I am stumped as to why they don't appear with search terms defined.
It turns out that this is a known issue for which a defect was logged. The Public App will not return images for search terms.
Here is a link you can use to track the status of this issue:
I am a bit confused. I opened the Public App and selected configure app so I could change the search terms as a test.
I replaced the term I was testing in my Flickr account with another term and Flickr icons appeared. (see image)
I figured BEER would be a very popular term in Durham and sure enough I get hits. I am trying to achieve the same outcome for the search IMHAPPY. The photo I uploaded to Flickr that is set to public with permission to show location and the hashtag IMHAPPY does not display when I set the search term to IMHAPPY.
I am wondering why this must be the case. Does Flickr want a set number of pics before it will display?
