Geotagging with N95

by on Dec.10, 2009, under Photography

So after a friend of mine showed me this, I thought to myself: “Wow, geotagging! I should start doing that.”

So I considered buying one of these GPS loggers. The one from Gisteq was 60 something but after shipping it would have been $100! So I go on amazon and found that a decent one would cost 60$ with free shipping. That’s not bad, but I wanted something for around $30. But then it hit me, my N95 has a GPS in it! There must be some kind of GPS logging app for it.

I was right, there are several actually, Nokia has their own called “Sports Tracker” or something, but this was the one i decided to use: It was simple to use.

So I start logging, and generating log files, but how do I use them to geotag picture? Well, I did it with a program named GeoSetter, it takes log data as input, and geotag your pictures using the time stamp. So be sure to have the clock on your cameras and phone in sync!

Here are a few samples of GeoTagged pictures I uploaded to flickr, you can see where i took the picture by clicking on the “map” link that appears on the right hand side…
