Geotagging with N95

by on Dec.10, 2009, under Photography

So after a friend of mine showed me this http://www.gisteq.com/PhotoTrackr/PhotoTrackrDPL900.php, 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: http://code.google.com/p/ttgpslogger/wiki/GettingStarted. 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 http://www.geosetter.de/en/index.html, 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…
