A press release we've received from Fort Collins, Colorado-based GeoSpatial Experts describes an interesting approach to the problem of identifying where your digital images were taken. Traditionally, this requires you to have a compatible GPS and digital camera connected together, and as images are captured the camera queries the GPS for location info with which to tag the image. GeoSpatial have another method which should allow the use of other digital cameras that can't be directly connected to a GPS - if you use a Garmin GPS receiver, that is. Place the GPS unit in your backpack or carry it with you, and it records info on the 'trip' - then when you return to your computer, GeoSpatial's GPS-Photo Link software compares the timestamps on the images to the info recorded by the GPS and figures out where you were when the images were captured. Simple, and it should work fairly accurately so long as your clocks on the GPS and digital camera match... If you've been wanting a GPS solution but didn't have one of the handful of cameras which can be connected to a GPS, this could be worth looking into!
