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

Geotaggers Classifications?

The Homesteading GIS'ers
GIS-centric scientists that use spatial imagery and videography for photogametry calculation, cartographic illustration of spatial relationships and landscape textures and context. The utility is project intensive with complex spatial presentations integrating many complex GIS layers and background imagery. Requires GIS skills and ESRI-like softwares and sciences.

The Enterprise Opportunity
Media-centric innovators designing utility within enterprises; sometimes providing geotagged media as services to enterprise requirements. Supported by budgeted programs and in-situ platforms with emphasis on spatial data normalization, compression, and archive redundancy. Streamlining of complex media collections for enterprise utility. Requires repeatable mission, rationalization of the corporate data dictionary, a dedicated team and processing center.

Pointography Ignition
Point and shoot pointography: A pointographer is an individual who uses a cheap point-and-shoot camera, while having the courage and dignity or lack-off rather... to call him/her-self a photographer ( Web-centric ease of use anywhere, anytime, by anyone and everyone including mashing-up spatial image sharing. Business model to construct around a peer to peer sharing of geotagged material.
