How To Pin Photos via GPS On The Map

Most digital cameras now dominate a GPS geotagging for photos. The free Windows software you can Geosetter the images still receiving their assigned location and then you know even after years, when the photo was taken.

Geosetter supports numerous data formats, hardware GPS logger. These are small devices that are carried along on the photo tour and record continuously the location using GPS. At home we will bring in the GPS data from the device to the computer and read it and the photos with a Geosetter.

GPS loggers are there from about $51USD, better equipment from $87USD. Only with a conventional car navigation sys can be do nothing, however, as these devices do not save its position continuously. Anyone fearing the cost, but can also manually place the photos by eye on the map.

How To Pin Photos via GPS On The Map

Since the GPS data side of the place and the exact time is mentioned and noted the time and the camera in the pictures, Geosetter can combine the two data sets, and determine where the photo was taken.

In addition Geosetter can even save the recording direction. The compass information must be the GPS device can determine, however, and only very few models. If you want, but updating is the recording direction manually. On the card then a funnel-shaped graphic is located. Normally, the data in fact contain only one receiving point, however, no indication of which way you photographed it.

Time and places change later

Those without GPS logger and want to try the whole thing as I said once, can make the local assignment can also manually using the built-in Google Maps map.

The manual assignment is the drug of choice if you do not have the time of the camera is set correctly but I know where a particular photo was taken. Then you select the pictures menu under file synchronization with GPS data, the function “Use track point from map” and positioned the red marker on the map at the point where it was taken. Geosetter then compares the time offset between the stored recording date and the GPS time and synchronized to request any additional photos of the trips accordingly after.

Geosetter exploits the power of modern multi-core processor systems, and works by very quickly.Who but raw data images so treated, but must take into account quite the odd coffee break. With JPEGs, however, the localization is very fast. Besides JPEG and RAW images Geosetter also works with TIFFs.

Where was that again?

Through a reverse address search using an online database, you see not only the coordinates but also the approximate address where the photo was taken.

This is of course much more meaningful than “N 52.532782 E 13.380441. These data are invisibly written into the pictures or the appropriate metadata fields (IPTC and EXIF) and, for example, read from Flickr and used for map display. With Bildviewern like Irfanview or XNView or Google Earth you can leave the local information also read back and display on the map.

Amrik-Conclusion: Geosetter will always get the recording location and is directly linked with the images. For those who make lots of photos, the process is invaluable. One can determine, even after years when the pictures were taken. A glance at the map also helps, of course, figure out what has been photographed since.
