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

Michael Jones, Google’s Chief Technol...

A really neet meeting of mobile-place gypsies. Apparently this year around 1200 were paid guests. Indeed how far have we come spatially in the years since?
So a couple of the more interesting observations might include:

Michael Jones, Google’s Chief Technology Advocate. He didn’t unveil anything new, but had some impressive statistics:

• Google Earth has been installed by over 600 million people
• There are 500 billion photos online with no blurred faces, yet governments make them blur faces from a few hundred thousand StreetView photos.
• There are 350,000 websites powered by the Google Maps API, with many others that use it a little bit, like for an embedded map on their “contact” page.
• Google Maps is the second-largest map provider, behind only the collection of Google Maps API sites.
• There were more than 500 million map edits made by users in 2009
• More people use Google Earth on the iPhone than on the Mac. I’m not sure if that’s a plug for the iPhone or a dig at the Mac.
