Robogeo and Geo-Tagging Photos
I am intrigued by GPS enabled cameras. There are only a few in production and they are fairly expensive as yet, but they offer the promise of making it quick and simple to place photos on a map. The camera records your GPS coordinates as you shoot, then automated software uploads your photos to a map with their exact locations.
Robogeo is a software solution that provides a bridge between your camera and GPS device. You sync the clocks on your camera and GPS. When you get home Robogeo compares the time stamp on the pictures with the GPS data from your trip and automatically geotags the photos. It will even upload them to Google Earth or Google Maps (examples here and here).
I am going to buy Robogeo tonight and begin experimenting.
