PRESS RELEASE: Ubermind Raises the Bar For Geotagging with the Release of Maperture Pro
SEATTLE, Washington — May 13, 2009 — Ten months ago, Übermind turned the world of digital photography on its head with the release of Maperture. Now, the company that brought you some of the most popular Aperture plug-ins available is at it again with the release of Maperture Pro.
“Maperture has been tremendously successful, but it was never intended to be the ﬁnal word on Aperture geotagging plug-ins,” said Leif Harrison, Übermind Engineer and Maperture Pro’s Lead Developer. “Since its release, we’ve spent the better part of a year adding some really amazing functionality. Many of these features were already on the drawing board, but our users have also been an incredible source of ideas. Because of this spirit of community, I already feel as if Maperture Pro is a huge success.”
Expanding upon Maperture’s already robust toolset, the Pro version adds an impressive assortment of highly requested features, including: importing Tracklog data from a wide-array of GPS devices; altitude (Z-axis) tagging; support for reverse geocoding; options for customizable keywords; as well as the ability to copy and paste geotag data.
Pricing and Availability
Maperture Pro is now available for direct download from Übermind’s products page. You can try a fully functional version of the plug-in free for 15 days. Then, at any time, you can easily purchase a software license from within the plug-in for $39.95.
Übermind’s expertise in integrating large enterprise systems, combined with its knowledge of designing intuitive user interfaces, has provided a solid foundation for developing high quality edit and export plug-ins for Aperture.
