Cameras and GPS

One day soon, the majority of cameras will come with built-in GPS like this Ricoh Pro G3. Then it will become so much easier to add geo-spatial metatags to photos. And once the online photo services such as Flickr start to handle this stuff under the covers, then I’ll be able to use Google Earth to show and navigate photo odysseys without any effort at all…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    You might want to check out which allows you to create animated GPS track stories (and include photos), and output the track, stories, and photos to Google Earth.Also, a program called RoboGEO also allows you to georeference photos in mass and output them to Google Earth along with the GPS track.

    Frank, thanks for these pointers – I’ll take a look. I find the community that has sprung up around Google Earth to be an interesting phenomenon.
