We saved you a step…

It seems when we launched version 2.0 of our Flickr shapes, we posted them with a flaw which made them useless to most popular geo applications.

Awwwww…

Luckily, Christopher Manning wrote a python script which makes them useful.

Yaaaayyyyy!

The least we can do is post an update which has already been christopher-manning-ified, So, we are very happy to announce version 2.0.1 of the Flickr shape files which can be downloaded here:

Look, it works:

A very hearty THANKS! from your friends at Flickr, Christopher.
