GPS-Tagging of Photos with @Trip and i-gotU
Some time ago I received a parcel from Taiwan. A company called Mobile Action asked me if I wanted to write a blog-review about their new GPS-Logging solution. They do not only sell the [...]

If you are on a mac and want to create a GE file for your tagged photos (that are in iPhoto) you could try out my iPhotoToGoogleEarth plugin

I am not sure what this means?
KML file?
Would be nice if you could show how in visual or something.
View In Google Earth? from what app?

would really appreciate it if you could make it so that newbie like myself can understand.

"Enter the link to the KML-File of Picasa Web Albums (to be found under the link "View in Google Earth")."

Hi michael.

"View in Google Earth" is a link, that can be found in Picasa Web Albums. You first have to upload your photos to Picasa Web Albums, then the KML-File can be found in the left corner of your album. For example in my album:

For geotagging my photos I use GPSed Photo Take'n'Pin ( - simple and free Windows-based software that adds location coordinates (geotags) to photos.
It's really convenient to use one service for GPS tracking from mobile, archiving tracks and photo geotagging. Check it out:

Very thorough evaluation of the different possibilities, thanks. In the end, I prefer Flickr, largely due to its other non-geotagging features. You can check out another comparison of Flickr and Picasa here:

Andreas, great post. I like your methodic approach to deciding the best tool for the job. You may be interested in evaluating It is meant to do exactly what you're trying to: upload photos in one operation, use EXIF information for automatic geotagging and generation of a stunning map that can be shared with others.

Let me know what you think...

you said in 2007 that ypou lose exif data when transferring photo via picasa web album uploader if u do not specify actual size.

I cannot find this option?
I have also tried the email upload otion but again the geo info is not present. I am using xperia x10 and in the camera the properties incluse lat and long.

any ideas

Hi jsdstam

Maybe they changed they upload process.
Make sure that your pictures contain the exif-information before you upload them, with a suitable software application.

thanks very much for your page! I used Geosetter last night and was able to stitch my GPS track onto some pictures I had taken while hiking Big Basin, CA. It works quite well as long as you remember to save all the pictures after they get their EXIF data updated. That's a separate step (which is fine) that isn't immediately obvious. The first time I thought I had updated my images only to find out my work was lost after exiting :-)

Hi :-)

I've recently been to India and Nepal where I used the Amod AGL3080 tracker which works quite fine actually. I've taken RAW+JPEG (.CR2 raw files from my Canon 7D camera) which I wanted to geotag before I worked more on them and exported etc. from Lightroom. I came across your old post here and tried GeoSetter (version 3.4.16 from 2011) which works surprisingly well for a free piece of software. Thanks for the tip, I wouldn't have found it otherwise ;-)

Hi Sander

Thanks for your comment! I'm glad to hear that I could help and that Geosetter seems to work. I updated the blog post and referenced you comment.

Hi Andreas,

Thank you for sharing it, that is very useful. It is great.

Just you haven't mentioned the direct geotagging way such as Nikon GP-1 and Easytagger GPS. Especially Easytagger GPS, can geotag directly into the photo' exif and when opened in Flickr,etc, it can link to the map directly. Also many other bright features, details in

Also, Mr.Andreas, if you are interested, could you mind to do a review of this Easytagger gps and then share the pros and cons of the product with website visitors.

Thank you

Android app that uses the phone as GPS recorder and that updates the cloud album ( picasa ) directly from the phone, geotagging the entire album.

Hello everyone! If interested about a free converter for making kml to gpx file or vice versa, I suggest trying this tool, maybe it's useful!
