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

ABI Expects 43% CAGR for Mobile Nav U...

ABI Expects 43% CAGR for Mobile Nav Until 2015
A new report by ABI Research indicates that handset-based navigation shipments are expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 43% over the next five years, rising from 30 million in 2010 to 181 million in 2015. 

According to telematics and navigation practice director Dominique Bonte, “The handset navigation boom is largely driven by free turn-by-turn navigation solutions recently made available by Nokia and Google. During its last earnings call, Nokia announced that Ovi Maps had already been downloaded more than 10 million times. While Google Maps Navigation was initially only available on Android phones in the US, it is expected to be introduced gradually on other platforms and in other markets, as demonstrated by the recent launch in the UK.” 

ABI noticed that increasingly, navigation services are being included in packaged offers from handset vendors and carriers, subsidized by smartphone hardware or data communication revenues. 

“These new business model paradigms upset the traditional value chain in which the end user pays directly for value-added mobile services, said Bonte. “They put pressure on the smaller independent vendors which are unable to leverage market share and brand to generate new revenue streams such as advertising, to reduce costs through crowd sourcing, or to offer bundled services. Consolidation will be unavoidable.”
