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

Nexus - learning Android

My Nexus arrived yesterday afternoon... on time IMHO. I was excited all day checking the Fed Express record to see if it had successfully be dropped on my doorstep... It had.

I have litterally "0" experience with touch screen phones. I do have many years of use of Symbian/Nokia smartphones and data connections via that device type. I was essentially running my sleek Nexus with in really minutes. I put it aside to get a full charge which maybe took an hour and a bit. Made TXTs, added contacts, took several pictures (one point I will make is Nokia is way out in front on the camera control and results), got my position and local Google Map. Was frustrated to learn that Adobe is not quite ready for the release of Flash that will allow Google Earth connections.

My first experience with the screen-keyboard left me thinking "Whoops, this isn't as good as one of my Palm Pilots from years ago.. my trick was to discover just a light touch really improved with each try my accuracy. But better yet I was able to create TXTs by using its speech recongition with no flaws! And that is really cool IMHO!

I am about to do a around the world trip stopping for several days at a number of meetings in South East Asian and Middle East countries. I have already asked my hosts to allow me to borrow a local phone number SIM so I will soon discover what is what. I can tell you that I use AT&T and from the get go my Nexus will not get the same access to that net as iPhone; via AT&T the best I can get is Edge.
