Down to earth: Geotagging photos

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 78.86.137.167] on March 07, 2008 09:13 PM
Geotag wouldn't load for me under Mac OS X 10.5.2. But, as I discovered, there are actually quite a few native OS X geotagging software options that can read track logs, automatically or manually match photos to coordinates, and write the data to EXIF (raw formats included). See http://www.bioneural.net/2008/03/05/an-abc-of-geotagging-photos-on-the-mac/. The other issue, once you're done, is letting people know that a photo is actually geotagged. Because the data re hidden away in EXIF-GPS they are invisible to humans—hence the Geotag Icon Project (http://www.geotagicons.com)
