Interesting colour search tool on Flickr
Have a look at this tool on Flickr which searches for images by colour pallete. Not sure what use it might be for mapping but it's pretty cool to play around with.
That's really cool.
I guess you could put in a few colours and find a picture that you like the look of which would have more colours in it. Then you could pixelate that and get a colour palette? Anyway, as you say, its really just a nifty little widget.

This could be handy for all of us who like the satellite style map and we could put in some mountain colors and find the Google images of mountain ranges.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

Yeah I saw that today too but couldn't think of a good idea for it other than when you need to make mosaics out of images.
