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

QStarz QTracker for real time GPS tra...

QStarz QTracker for real time GPS tracking

QStarz finally comes out with a real time GPS tracking device. It is called QTracker and is still in sample phase. But we’re hoping we’ll get our own sample pretty soon. The idea is you put a SIM card (pre-paid recommended) in this device and dial this number from your personal cell phone and receive a text message back with a link to Google Maps. Brilliant! You can get moving alerts that can be sent up to three numbers. And it even texts you back when the battery is running low. The only thing you have to worry about is to find a SIM card that doesn’t charge you monthly fees for being idle and doesn’t expire.

This will potentially work in any country provided you plug in a SIM card that works where ever you are.

QStarz QTracker uses an MTK II GPS module which is capable of tracking 66 satellites at once. GSM frequencies it runs on are 850/900/1800/1900Mhz. It charges via mini USB in about 3 hours but the spec sheet does not mention how long it lasts. We’re hoping this real time GPS tracking device has an auto power off so it doesn’t waste batteries when your asset is parked somewhere for long periods of time.

We’ll keep you posted
