Geotag digital images with latitude, longitude, altitude, and direction information. RoboGEO stamps this information onto the actual photo or writes it to the EXIF headers, allowing you to permanently geotag and link your photos to the GPS coordinates. All writing to the EXIF and IPTC headers is lossless and all of the existing comments (including the MakerNote and the Adobe XMP metadata) are preserved. Includes a Picasa-style geotagger for Google Earth. Create web pages that use Google Maps, export KML or KMZ files to Google Earth, upload geotagged photos to Flickr, export ESRI SHP shapefiles, export to MapPoint, or export DXF files to AutoCAD or IntelliCAD. Show the photo direction on maps and calculate it from the GPS tracklog. Automatically merge EXIF or IPTC tags into the image titles and descriptions. Record dictation using any modern digital voice recorder and automatically associate audio with the photos.
Rotate or redate images based on the EXIF info. Export GPX files. Edit the EXIF times. Lookup altitudes knowing only lat/lon. Photo locations can be projected to a new location in either ground or airplane mode. Free EXIF/IPTC viewer. Geocode any type of JPG, PNG, BMP, TIF, Adobe DNG file, Canon CR2, Minolta MRW, or Epson ERF file. Directly supports Garmin GPS units (USB or COM), but no GPS is required. Geocode images from a GPS tracklog, NMEA sentences, waypoints, known place names OziExploer PLT files, or TCX files. Import GPX files for interfacing with other GPS makes and models like Magellan and Trimble. Supports DNR Garmin. Rename images per the EXIF data. IPTC editor. Use any digital camera. Internationally aware. Very easy to use. Nice user interface. Can be fully automated from the command line. Perfect tool for aerial photography, land surveyors, engineers, insurance claim adjusters or anyone who needs to collect field data for integration into a GIS system. Affordable. Free lifetime upgrades. Extensive on-line documentation.
Write to the EXIF Headers
Write the latitude, longitude, altitude and photo direction to the image's EXIF headers to permanently embed the location data within the actual image. The writing is lossless, so there's no loss of image quality.
Stamp the Images
Stamp the local time, UTC offset, latitude, longitude, altitude, photo direction and datum at the bottom of each image.
You can specify numerous options for the watermarks, including the latitude and longitude formats.
Geocode Photos Using Google Earth
Use Google Earth as a geocoder. Simply position the crosshair to the desired location and then press the Geocode button.
Since everything occurs on your local computer, it's faster than using a web based application.
This feature also allows you to quickly preview or adjust an existing image location - just press the F5 key.
Create Google Earth KML or KMZ Files
Export KML or KMZ files for display in Google Earth (sample). RoboGEO's "KMZ for the Web" format creates very small KMZ files with embedded images that you can share with others by e-mail.
Like with Google Maps, you can make full use of your EXIF and IPTC information in the image titles and descriptions.
Since there's no requirement for loading images, you can also use this feature as your normal GPX tracklog viewer and you probably will once you see the results.
Changelog for this release:
Import shapefiles as tracklogs and use them to geocode photos. You can also import them as waypoints and use the attribute data to aid in manual geocoding.
Enhanced MGRS (Military Grid Reference System) Support
The program now fully supports MGRS throughout the user-interface, i.e. instead of latitude and longitude, everything is MGRS.
This feature allows you to strip out all of the EXIF and IPTC data from images while preserving only those fields that you want to keep.
Find Similar Geocoded Photos
This allows you to identify similar geocoded images, i.e. images that are within a specific time or distance proximity to another.
Enhanced Image Direction Editing
There's an enhanced user-interface for entering image directions with additional support for the handling of relative directions.
Enhanced Image Timestamp Editing
Edit image timestamps by moving them to a different timezone and/or by applying an offset that accounts for an inaccurate camera clock.
Other Minor Features
There are several other minor enhancements including the ability to write to the EXIF when exporting to Google Earth, the ability to include additional user-specified text to the image footer stamp, and various other user-requested features that can be found in the preferences.
