Calling all Ricoh Geo-imaging Pointographers
FREE Google Earth Geotagged Image Viewers - SAVE $200!
Got Ricoh geotagging? If you do, your geo-image map making just became FREE. No more need for a $200 ouit-of-date software...! If you are an owner of one of Ricoh's Geo-Imaging products like the Capio RR1, the Capliio RR30, the RDC i700 or their newest model the Ricoh Caplio 500SE you do not really need a geotagger software. What you do need is either Google's Picasa Photo Catalog or Red Hen's IsWhere utility. Both solutions are free and allow the user to display and review his geotagged images on Google Earth.
Picasa is a great tool that resides on your PC, handles the cataloging of your images, has great tools and features including the ability to post and share some of your local photos with friends via Picasa.NET. Most importantly for you "pointographers" is that each goetagged image is identified by a geotagged symbol and when needed can be displayed via its position on Google Earth. Picasa 2 Free Download and Net Storage
Alternatively if you have already settled on a image cataloger like ACDC, Microsoft Image, or one of the many others, you can download IsWhere and there-after have immediate access to geotagged images via Google Earth. Drag and drop a image or a selection of images or just browse and highlight the directories you would like to display on Google Earth , hit the <CR> and Google Earth is loaded, and any geotagged image in your selection is placed. Simple and to the point....
