iPhoto's "Places" and Geotagging

Until I got my iPhone, I didn't realize how cool iPhoto's Places really was.

One thing, it seems that the two camera apps I bought don't attach any gps info to the photo, only the built in camera app does.

Kind of nice seeing on a map exactly where the picture was taken.

You can manually tag the photos/events within iPhoto.

You can also get the EyeFi Explore SD card that Geo Tags and uploads over WiFi

Does anyone make a camera that receives GPS info via Bluetooth or WiFi or GPS unit with Bluetooth or WiFi transmits location?

There are cameras with GPS receivers that will put location data into the photo. I don't know the model numbers.

I'm not clear on exactly what your question is asking, though. GPS info doesn't need to be sent via Bluetooth or WiFi. It comes down from satellites continually and needs to be picked up and processed by a receiver. One can use a separate GPS receiver and link the info to a photo later in the computer with software that automatically compares the times.

The camera would have no gps receiver, but a bluetooth or other type of receiver that would be paired with an external GPS receiver. The external receiver would constantly be transmitting its' position (from your pocket or someplace nearby) and the camera would record that data with the photo when the shutter is pressed.

The post processing you mentioned, is that via the track log? If so, what software will do this?

Got it. Not that I know of.

In post processing, tracks are the easiest way to do it as it requires no manual input from you. You can also use waypoints; you just have to assign a waypoint to an image. Some programs will choose the nearest waypoint if no track log exist, some interpolate, etc.

Image Ingester will tag image files automatically upon import from a card using a track log. Its probably the slickest workflow-wise. Others are GPSPhotoLinker, HoudahGEO, GeoSetter (windows). There are others, I'm sure.

Thanks, I'll take a look at those.
