I have not yet used Ushahidi and I could not find the answer on their website to my question.

I wish to do the following:

  1. setup an Ushahidi server/map,
  2. go outside to make photos with my Android/iPhone smartphone
  3. upload these photos to Ushahidi which should be saved in a database
  4. display the photos on the map according to the coordinates. Also few lines of comments would be nice.

When I now visit my site and open the map, I would like to see some dots (actual position of an entry/uploaded image). By double clicking on the dot, the original uploaded image+comments should be displayed(pop up).

Is this possible with Ushahidi?

You can easily set up your own Ushahidi deployment at Crowdmap. It's just a matter of filling out your profile and naming your deployment.

Crowdmap is designed and built by the people behind Ushahidi, a platform that was originally built to crowdsource crisis information. As the platform has evolved, so have its uses. Crowdmap allows you to set up your own map of Ushahidi without having to install it on your own web server

Crowdmap also has an Android app called Crowdmap Checkins which you can use to take photos and link them to the coordinates. They can then be visualized on the map if I'm not mistaken.

Good luck on your project :)
