I have a flickr account with around the 4226 Pictures
wishing for a way to integrate this service with my flickr account
without the need to re-upload and the need to add the discriptions and tags again.

sjoerdvw, there is something related which may be a step in this direction. 

If:

1) your photos are Creative Commons licensed
2) your photos are geotagged on Flickr
3) Bing Maps has Streetside imagery (very) near where your photos were taken then they have a chance of being automatically stitched into Bing Maps later this year.

For more information, see these two videos:

2) http://www.ted.com/talks/blaise_aguera.html

I wonder which of Blaise' two TED videos you watched before dropping by. I was thinking just the 2007 version, but perhaps you saw his 2010 talk as well?
