JPEG Geo Tracker – Never Get Lost AgainI’ve never given geo tracking my pictures much thought, not until I came across Coolest-Gadgets post about putting GPS to your JPEG images. This gadget would especially apply to those frequent travelers, or travelers who love getting lost in the details during family slide shows.
The picture geo tracker is a standalone device that allows a photographer to tag their photos with GPS location. The Photo Finder is pocket sized and has software which syncs GPS location data into the saved photo file without PC connection or editing. Coolest-Gadgets reports the Photo Finder only supports JPEG at the moment, with plans to support KML route files so you can not only geo tag and plot your pictures, but sync up your travel experience with Google Earth.The Photo Finder supports SD flash memory in standalone mode only, but a USB port gives you sync options to other popular flash memory such as Compact Flash etc. So lets consider a nice vacation through Europe where you visit many different countries, cities and historical sites. Sure it’s fresh in your mind a couple months…if not weeks after the trip. But consider looking back on those photos 5 or 10 years later, wouldn’t it be fun to track the exact location those invaluable photos where taken? Street price for the ATP Photo Finder is expected to be around $100 and I’ll update this post with links when the product is available (mid Feb).
