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

Pure Smarts might cost?

In absolute cellphone market share, none of the "pure" smartphone makers breached the top five. However, poor performances in the smartphone arena are generally believed to have cost Nokia, Motorola and Sony Ericsson overall share in 2009. Nokia in particular dropped from 38.6 percent to 36.9 percent as Symbian S60 lost out to fresher competitors. Motorola's move into the mid-range and high-end areas cost it share, though much of this was hurt by Motorola offering relatively few strong-selling devices until the success of its Android phones. It and Sony Ericsson had depended primarily on soon defunct mobile platforms like UIQ for some of the year and until the end of the year had depended almost exclusively on Windows Mobile for smartphones.

Symbian dropped below the 50 percent mark for the first time to 46.9 percent, narrowing its lead. Other traditional platforms have also suffered: the iPhone overtook Windows 
Mobile in share last year as Microsoft's aging platform dropped from 11.8 percent to 8.7 percent, effectively taking Apple's fourth place spot from 2008. Pure Linux fell from 7.6 percent to 4.7 percent as many of its proponents chose the Linux-based Android platform instead.
