Here's a web 2.0 media play...
 
Forget about the photo / video hosting sites built around the "social tagging" mantra...
 
Instead, focus on the historical archive business.
 
What does this mean....?
 
 
This is simple...
Have a site where people can upload media that visualizes what an area looks like now.  Update the geographical information whenever it changes (new subdivison goes in, shopping center built, natural disaster wipe it away, etc...)
 
Market the before / after information to traditional media outlets that need the visual information to show the impact of time, nature, governments, etc...
 
Think about it...
 
If you had a photographic archive of what New Orleans looked like prior to Katrina, and the "news" could show comparisons to what it looked like now... you should be able to draw in licencse fees.
 
There's all different types of avenues to take with this, but you get the basics.
