Geotagging is the process of adding geographically accurate information about the location of the photograph to the image's metadata. To utilize this ability, you must possess specific equipment. You'll need a digital camera equipped with a built-in GPS receiver or a camera capable of connecting to a GPS receiver or module, as well as specific software and programs designed to exchange geotagging locations.
EasyGPS is an excellent GPS system for geotagging photographs. Simple prerequisites include setting your camera's clock to the correct local time. The photographs must be in JPEG format; they cannot be in BMP or RAW. While rotating, cropping, editing, and so on, some image editing software destroys the metadata created on the camera. Before doing any modification, it is essential that you geotag the images.
Your digital camera's GPS receiver must be capable of recording timestamps and track records. Synchronize the camera time with the GPS for the best results.
The most common error made when geotagging photos is setting the camera's date incorrectly; triple checks the camera's date setting, especially the year.
Simply follow the easy instructions below to geotag the relevant photo. Confirm the specified clock time, turn on the GPS receiver, and wait for a stable connection from four satellites; the receiver can be placed anywhere; it does not have to be held in your hands. Take the photos and constantly check that the GPS tracker is creating track logs of the photos you take.
Return to your computer and export the GPS records to GPX format. Transfer the images you took to your computer, and EasyGPS will begin writing the photos' geotag data. Photos with a timestamp that matches the GPS tracking logs will appear on the left side of the screen and in the correct place on the map. The map will be removed from photos that do not match the GPS tracking log.
The ATP photo finder is an excellent device for geotagging photos. A little, simple device that keeps track of your travels, battery consumption, GPS location, and memory status. The device's SiRFstarrIII chipset is utilized to determine your location.
Utilizing this equipment is a breeze. Turn on the GPS and allow it to keep track of your travels; then shoot as many images as you like. After that, remove the SD card from the camera and insert it into the ATP photo finder, which will geotag the images automatically. After that, launch a mapping application such as Google Earth or Bing Maps and upload the tagged images to the server using the labeled images.
The ATP photo finder does not accept time zones; it operates in UTC only. Additionally, the camera you are using should be configured to this time zone.
