New Functionality in GPS-Photo Link 5.2

Generate New Report Types

  • Sort and select photos by any attribute for report generation.
  • Condensed Reports- Now users can create condensed reports which display mulitple photos per page. A condensed report includes a cover page with an overview map, logos, and title information. After the cover page, each additional page contains two or three photos. Each photo has an accompanying map and an attribute table specific to that photo. This report is displayed in portrait mode.
  • Contact Sheets - Contact Sheets can include up to 8 photos per page. The Contact Sheets do not have a cover page. Each page includes two maps showing the location of the first photo on that page. Next it shows each photo. The user may include a title above each photo along with the file name below each photo. There are no attribute tables or individual photo maps. This report is displayed in landscape mode.

Create attribute lists on the desktop for use with GeoJot and the Ricoh GPS camera

  • The List Editor in GPS-Photo Link provides a simple way to create lists for use in the GeoJot mobile app or the Ricoh GPS camera. This saves users from having to enter data on the device itself. It also makes it easier for users to add features like required fields and default values for GeoJot.
  • The new List Editor allows users to create lists (memos) by importing the list from an existing Excel/.csv file or by typing in the attributes and values.
  • GeoJot users- Attach the attribute list to an email message and distribute it to everyone on your field team using GeoJot.
  • Ricoh GPS Cameras users- Save the List (.mta file) onto the SD card you intend to use in the Ricoh GPS camera.

Usability improvements

  • Sort photos by attributes/memos for easier editing and report generation.
  • Users now have the ability to geotag photos with data files that do not have lat/lon. This is useful for adding attribute information to already geotagged photos. An example would be adding attribute information from an existing database to the EXIF header of photos taken from the Nikon AW100 which does not have the ability to collect attribute information. Simply use an Excel or CSV file with the filename of the photo as one of the columns.
  • Google Maps – Google Maps are now available for projects with over 50 photos.
  • Fixed Field Of View bug for some cameras that resulted in a very narrow field of view output.

January 29, 2013 5.2.10 enhancements and bug fixes

  • Fixed error when Geotagging with bad lat/lon in CSV file
  • Fixed Geotag wizard fields being reset and not using template settings
  • Fixed sorting of output when some photos were excluded or deleted
  • Fixed image direction being set to null when geotagging without direction

September 21, 2012 5.2.10 enhancements and bug fixes

  • Fixed Geotag wizard fields being reset and not using template settings
