GPS-related photo bits:
- Bridge geotagger is a free script that "allows you to inspect, set and/or edit GPS data embedded in photos using a Google Maps interface. It uses the embedded Opera HTML engine in Bridge to display Google Maps." Very cool, though developer Aldo Hoeben describes it as more technology demo than a full-fledged tool.
- Firing up the Exposure Flickr-browsing app on my iPhone the other day, I discovered the nearest geotagged image is of "¡Chavelas!," described as "A delicious blend of Modelo, lime juice and a shot of tequila in a
frozen pimp chalice!" Thank you, intercontinental technology network, for making my neighborhood seem cool for a minute.
- Previously: Did you know that Lightroom can call up a Google map to show the coordinates in your images? So, for that matter, can Photoshop Elements.
- What about images that lack coordinates? Can a computer accurately guess where something was shot? That’s the goal of Carnegie Mellon’s IM2GPS project. Check out this CNET story for a good summary. [Via Doug Nelson]
