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

2.6 Billion Images Served! And that is a bucket full!


Digital camera shipments continued to rise in 2006, climbing 14.5 percent to 106 million units -- and Samsung more than doubled its digital camera shipments in 2006, reports IDC, expanding its market share to 7.8 percent from just 3.8 percent a year earlier.

However, Canon remains firmly in the lead in overall global digital camera shipments in 2006, according to the Framington, MA-based research firm.

IDC says Canon shipped 19.7 million cameras in 2006, 18.7 percent of the market. Sony was 2nd with 15.8 percent; Kodak, 4th at 10 percent; Olympus followed with 8.6. Nikon, knocked out of the top 5 by Samsung, had a close 7.6 percent market share in 2006.

In particular, digital SLR shipments grew 39 percent to 5 million units last year. Canon had 46.7 percent share of that market niche, with Nikon taking 33 percent.
