Tired of sharing your travel pics one by one? UrbanBird lets you upload your photos and makes a map of your vacation that includes geographical information you can share with your friends on Facebook during or after the trip.

» What it does: Creates a map from the photos you've uploaded and captions them with dates, locations, titles and descriptions.

» What's hot: You can upload photos and have them instantly mapped and captioned. If you're creating a map while you're on a trip, click on the photo to get travel suggestions for similar attractions near you. The website is great for active travelers who want to share a visual journal at the end of an eventful day.

» What's not: Make sure your camera is set to geotag your photos before you start snapping your vacation pics. The photos I took with my digital camera were not geotagged (and, therefore, could not be uploaded), but my smartphone photos were. It would be nice if I could upload any photo and add the location myself. The good news is, UrbanBird is crafting a feature so users can geotag their pictures and add comments manually. Hold tight; I've got my eye on this one.
