SD-compatible GPS makes geotagging easy.
A SD-compatible GPS makes geotagging easy. Memory maker ATP has launched what it describes as: "the World's most easy-to-use Geotagging device." The Photo Finder is a portable GPS receiver that can automatically sync its data with the photos from your digital camera, without the need for a computer.
Sounds interesting.I just googled the sight and read about it. http://www.gisdevelopment.net/news/viewn.asp?id=GIS:N_ipnghc...
a good way to build a travel type poi with photos, but it would take a little thinking through.
Actually there are a few companies that make these and I have been interested in getting one but haven't yet. Most require software support on a computer that links the photo data and time data to the GPS coordinates for that same time and date. The key is you sync the camera's clock to the GPS so they are the same.
Unfortunately, most of the ones I have read about use Windows only software to link the two together. I use a Mac primarily and all my photos go onto my Mac so I would have to use a two part process of putting the photos onto a Windows machine, link them, then moving them back off to my Mac.
By the way, these GPS devices are very simply, no screen, no navigation. All they do is collect data and store a log of time, date, and coordinates. My big wish if for digital camera manufacturers to start putting GPSs into the cameras themselves and tag the photos as you take them with the coordinates. Maybe a bit hard in the little compacts, but certainly something that could probably be shoehorned into the larger dSLR models.
Just put one with Bluetooth on oder the other day from Sensons.com. This should be interesting.
Guttermouth, maybe something you have been waiting for.
Ya I have seen that one before and it is nice that they have started, but beyond that one (released nearly a year ago?) I haven't seen a trend of manufacturers following suit. I would prefer to have a choice of cameras with GPS built in rather than having to accept the one model that does.
