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

Android equally split between three versions - Electronista

Only third of Android phones up to date

Less than a third of Android phones are using the most recent version of the OS, Google has revealed in its latest platform versions data. About 32.4 percent are using Android 2.1, but an even larger 37.2 percent are still using Android 1.5. Another 29.4 percent are still using Android 1.6, and exactly 1 percent are using older or in-between versions like Android 1.1 and 2.0.

The split contrasts sharply with iPhone OS distribution, where 90 percent use iPhone 3.1and just 5 percent use a significantly older OS version.

Android's distribution has been a regular problem for Google as it has locked a significant portion of devices out of newer apps and features, such as Google Maps Navigation and theofficial Twitter app. Much of the stratification comes from companies like HTC and Motorola customizing the interface and making it difficult to implement new OS updates on time. The phones quickest to move to Android 2.1 have been those using the stock Android interface, such as the Droid and Nexus One.

Google is aiming to unify updates in the future by allowing component updates outside of the OS, but the current environment has created "orphan" phones such as the Samsung Galaxy that may never get updates even though they are less than a year old. Apple has only just begun dropping support for certain iPhones after three years with news that iPhone 4.0 won't recognize first-generation models due to hardware limits.
