Add geocode tags to your images without a GPS device
Houdah Software today released a public beta of HoudahGeo, its Macintosh geocoding application that adds latitude, longitude and altitude information to the Exif header of an image.
"With HoudahGeo you may 'pin' photos to the locations where they were taken" the company explained. "The thus created information may be exported to Exif tags as well as to Google Earth KMZ files. Such a file allows for browsing your photos within Google Earth."
The program can operate in several modes, depending on whether or not you use a GPS receiver:
- Fully automatic mode is available when a track log file from a GPS receiver is provided.
- Finer control is possible by attaching photos to waypoints created using a GPS device.
- When no GPS device is available, manual geocoding is possible through integration with the Google Maps service.
