On Monday Ovolab announced the release of
Geophoto, a Mac OS X application used for browsing, collecting and sharing digital photos. Geophoto was first
previewed in January at Macworld Expo. Geophoto costs $49.95.
Geophoto displays local and remotely shared photos on a 3D model of the Earth, pinned to the location where the photo was taken. You can pan, zoom and fly through the photos, drag them to a specific location to “geotag” them, and share them with other users. The software integrates with iPhoto and can also work with the photo blogging site Flickr. (It doesn’t require an Internet connection unless you’re using online-specific features.)
Geophoto works with JPEG files, RAW images and other formats, supporting GPS metadata. It also works with the Space Navigator, the 3D input device from 3Dconnexion.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.4 or later and at least 64 MB VRAM. Geophoto is a Universal binary.
