THORNTON, Colorado, USA, 05 April 2009 – GeoSpatial Experts, developer of the easy-to-use GPS-Photo Link photo mapping software, has been selected by Nikon USA to sell the new GPS-enabled COOLPIX P6000 digital camera.

“The beauty of the Nikon COOLPIX P6000 bundle is that both the camera and GPS-Photo Link software are simple enough for anyone to use, but they each offer capabilities that will meet the diverse needs of business users and mapping professionals,” said Rick Bobbitt, President of GeoSpatial Experts.
The Nikon COOLPIX P6000 is the highest end point-and-shoot camera sold by Nikon USA and the only digital camera with fully integrated GPS. The GPS is built into the body of the camera so that location coordinates of each photograph are automatically tagged to the photo without any input by the photographer. For GPS applications, the main appeal of this 13.5-megapixel camera – aside from its attractive price and legendary Nikon optics – is that it’s small enough to fit in a pocket.
“Nikon believes GPS technology wedded with photography not only has recreational applications, but as GeoSpatial Experts has proven to us, it has industrial, commercial, engineering and other specific business applications,” said Scott Crawford, Manager of Special Markets and OEM Accounts for Nikon USA.
Business people can use the Nikon COOLPIX P6000 with GPS-Photo Link mapping software to document the location of their photos. The software uses the location data acquired by the built-in GPS receiver to display photos with maps in a printed report, in Google Earth or in a geographic information system (GIS) such as ESRI.
“Any industry that requires photographic documentation for regulatory compliance, reporting purposes, or evidence gathering can benefit from this fast and easy-to-use software,” said Bobbitt. “With the Nikon COOLPIX P6000, capturing GPS data is as simple as taking a picture. Anyone can learn how to use the GPS-Photo Link Express software in about 15 minutes.”
In business applications, the Nikon camera and GPS-Photo Link Express will appeal to law enforcement, assessment, real estate, emergency response, engineering & construction, and oil & gas personnel. The camera and software packages are available with an optional ruggedized, waterproof Pelican case. All of the Nikon COOLPIX P6000 bundles offered by GeoSpatial Experts are priced below $1000.
