Geotagging Imagery and Video

IsWHERE is a log of my thoughts, reflections, and news/blog links on the emergence of image and video geospatial tagging. On May5th this year, I opened a second blog to deal with more detailed aspects of tools for FalconView and TalonView can be found at RouteScout. Trends I want to try and follow are the various disruptions resulting from spatial smart-phones, how many GPS devices are out there, smart-cameras, and other related news. And yes, I have a business interest in all of this. My company Red Hen has been pioneering this sort of geomedia for more than a decade.

So beyond a personal blog, I also provide a link to IsWHERE a shareware tool created by Red Hen Systems to readily place geoJPEG or geotagged imagery and soon GEM full motion media kept on your own computer(s) into Google Earth/Map from your File Manager media selection. Works great for geotagged images from Nikon, Ricoh, Sony, iPHONE, Android and all geo-smartphones that can create geotagged images. IsWhere - read about it

IsWhere for Google Earth, a simple, easy to use utility that displays where each photo was taken on a map. IsWhere uses spatially matched images, also called Red Hen Photos. A Red Hen Photo is any image that has Global Positioning System (GPS) data stored in the image's EXIF header. The IsWhere program now provides a method for photographers and photo analysts to quickly verify the spatial location where a photo was taken. Using a simple right click or drag and drop selection, users pass images into IsWhere to quickly display the image's location inside the Google Earth program.
IsWhere is a great way to see "what is where." Whether you are mapping out your vacation photos, documenting favorite restaurants or identifying potential building sites, IsWhere gives you the power to easily see where each photo was taken. Save the photos in your favorite places or email them to others for them to map and view. IsWhere makes it easy to SNAP, MAP, and SHARE your world.

IsWhere currently can post images to Google Earth from spatially smart digital cameras like Ricoh and Nikon.
