Sony has a new DSLR with software which allows you to Geotag your photos using data from their GPS unit.

Since their GPS doesn't actually attach to the camera, its just the software which matches time and date of location with photo timestamps, I figured you could do this with other cameras and GPS units, provided you had some software.

Voila:

GPS PhotoLink Software - $279

RoboGEO - $79.95

Lots of nice professional features including watermarking, ESRI shapefile output, etc.

Free Software:

WWMX Client, Location Stamper and TrackDownload

OziPhoto - $25 professional version




If anyone knows of any other similar software, please post a link....

GPS PhotoLink Software - $279


I've used this, and it works very well. We were looking for a camera that had integrated GPS, or that could receive GPS coordinates from our GPS unit via bluetooth. The only one that I could find at the time was the Ricoh G3, which is very expensive considering the spec's of the camera.

GPS PhotoLink does essentially the same thing, but lets you use any camera. The only catch is that you have to take a picture of the GPS unit before you start, and you have to store a track log.
