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

In a recent address entitled "Mobile Broadband: A 21st Century Plan for U.S. Competitiveness, Innovation and Job Creation", Chairman Julius Genachowski of the FCC referred to a report by Cisco that North American wireless networks carried 17 petabytes per month in 2009 and forecasting that by 2014, they will carry 740 petabytes per month.   Worldwide Cisco is forecasting that mobile data traffic will more than double annually, increasing from 90 petabytes per month in 2009 to 3.6 exabytes per month in 2014.

According to Chairman Genachowski the FCC received a letter from over a hundred companies including Amazon, Apple, AT&T, Cisco, Dell, Intel, Microsoft, Motorola, and Verizon requesting more spectrum for mobile broadband.  As part of a National Broadband Plan to be announced next month, the FCC is planning to open more spectrum for mobile broadband by freeing up to 500 Megahertz of spectrum over the next decade by means of a “Mobile Future Auction”.  The auction will permit existing spectrum licensees, such as television broadcasters, to voluntarily sell spectrum to mobile wireless carriers.  The proposal is supported by the Wireless Association (CTIA).
