GisTEQ has announced the release of a Mac version of software to control their PhotoTrackr, a device that enables GPS camera tracking. The basic software is free for PhotoTrackr owners; a Pro version costs $25.
Ranging in price from $99 to $169, PhotoTrackr products are external peripherals designed to work with digital cameras. When you take pictures the PhotoTrackr tags them with Global Positioning System (GPS) data so you know where the images were taken. The device supports Google Earth, can export NMEA and GPX info from the GPS log files, and works with geotagging software. It’s also integrated with Flickr, Picasa Web Albums and SmugMug.
PhotoTrackr for Mac features photo management and editing capabilities, a Flash-based slideshow maker, photo Web album and other functions. The Pro version removes PhotoTrackr promotion text in Flash movies and Web galleries, offers more customization options to generate Flash galleries, removes limitations on Lightbox Web gallery creation and photo location data, adds an EXIF tool to merge notes, keywords and GPS metadata into JPEG files, and more.
System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
