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

IPTC Photo Metadata Conference

IPTC and Ifra Photo Metadata Conference in June

IPTC Photo Metadata Conference

WINDSOR, England – 3 April 2007 – For the first time, an international conference focusing exclusively on photo metadata will bring together camera makers, photographers, editors, software designers and others who have a stake in professional imaging.

The 1st international Photo Metadata Conference will be held in Florence, Italy, on 7 June 2007. Held in conjunction with CEPIC Congress 2007, this event is organised by two major news industry organisations, IPTC and Ifra, and is sponsored by Adobe Systems Inc.

Everyone agrees that it's difficult to describe photos in a universal way -- independent of language and culture -- but only recently have technologies such as XML permitted photos to carry advanced metadata that can survive throughout the photo production process from camera to finished product. In addition, such formerly exotic technologies as GPS and digital recording can now be embedded in cameras to make a permanent record of such important parameters as the photographer's location and audio comments.

For a full day, representatives from standardisation bodies and such vendors as Adobe, Apple, Canon, Fotoware, Hasselblad and Microsoft will discuss how to improve the interoperability of photo metadata. Photographers, editors, image buyers and others leaders in the photo industry will discuss better ways to describe photos and related rights and permissions information, and will learn how crucial data generated by cameras can improve the editing and long-term resale of images.

The goal of the conference is to simplify the convergence and global applicability of photo metadata, and determine how to maximize the widespread and consistent implementation of standards -- adding value to photos.

As the creator of so-called "IPTC header," a 15-year-old metadata standard that has gained nearly universal acceptance among professional photographers, the IPTC is well positioned to lead the photo industry in this effort. The 2007 congress being held by CEPIC, the Coordination of European Picture Agencies Press Stock Heritage, is the perfect venue for the International Photo Metadata Conference, bringing together the biggest players in Europe's vibrant photo industry.

We welcome participation everyone in the photo industry. To attend the Photo Metadata Conference or learn more about CEPIC's convention in historic Florence, please visit http://www.phmdc.org/. The modest fee includes coffee breaks, buffet lunch and all Conference materials.
