The GeoTagger is a small box which sits atop your digital (or film) camera hotshoe and records the precise location and direction of every photograph you take. Cool stuff, eh? You can use it to make better maps, to annotate Google map mashups and all sorts of stuff we haven’t thought of yet. The only thing is you need a Garmin GPS receiver sitting on top to deliver the actual tagging info, and you also have the merge the tag data and image manually. Maybe V 2.0 will have the GPS built in and auto merge, eh? Priced at £149.00 +VAT. [via RawFeed]
The Jelbert GeoTagger is more advanced than other geo-tagging devices on the market. Other solutions estimate the location of the photograph from a recorded GPS track and guess at the direction of the photograph using GPS track data. This frequently leads to inaccuracies that can reduce the value of your location meta-data and photograph.
