IsWhere Image and Videos - Under Deveopment


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

Yahoo versus Google - No more Mashing???

Ran accross this today as sort of a foot note and wonder if its an Uh-o, or a dead "bird in the mine" regarding the commercial interests limiting of the total freedom "Mashing" enjoys? If I see the signals right, in the most current licensing facts of Yahoo's APIs versus mashing the results with Google, well I guess Yahoo has decided what is Yahoo's is Yahoo's? I am going to bet its going to be a VERY HOT topic very soon? Flickr's geotagging value didn't come from Yahoo but from several of the very best Mashups that tied Flickr images to Google Earth. But that was way back when mashing was new news within the Wall Street Journal?

Essentially it looks like Yahoo does not want nor will they permit their API to geocode/geotag information that is later mashed or passed-over to Google Earth or Map? Something here IMHO...

"Phoogle Maps (pronounced like Foogle Maps) is a PHP class that integrates itself with the Google Maps API and with the Yahoo Geocoding API to make an easy to use interface to display Google Maps on your site."

Mapperz Note to Users: Check the Yahoo Maps API Terms and Conditions before investing time on this. There maybe infringement using the Yahoo Geocoder with Google Maps.
