Houdah Software has released
1.0, a utility that enables photographers to add geocoding to their pictures — linking them to the location where they were taken. It costs $24.95.
Geocoding is catching on as a method of tagging photographs, and increasing numbers of digital cameras, especially on the high end, feature support for or built-in GPS transmitters that enable them to find their location. Presuming your camera doesn’t have that capability and you’re still interested in geocoding, HoudahGeo has been developed for that purpose.
The software enables you to publish GPS data about your photos to Google Earth (as a KML file) or write it to the picture’s EXIF metadata. As a result, you can browse your photos by location, seeing where on Earth the pictures you’re viewing were taken.
HoudahGeo requires Mac OS X v10.4.8 or later and is a Universal binary.
