Photo mapping has become a popular application of GPS technology. Geotagging adds location coordinates to a digital image so that it can be accurately placed on a map. While the technology is new to many people, some GIS professionals have been effectively using photo mapping technology for many years to better document objects and features at a specific place and time. See how photo mapping is being used across many industries from engineering to oil & gas to disaster response.
GeoSpatial Experts introduced GPS-Photo Link as the first photo-mapping software in 2001. Known for its consistency and reliability over the past decade, GPS-Photo Link has emerged as the industry standard solution for mapping geotagged photos. The software saves businesses time, money and eliminates the errors often introduced during tedious manual data entry.
GPS-Photo Link enables photographers to accurately map the locations of photos taken either with a standard digital camera and hand-held GPS receiver or with a GPS-enabled camera. By synchronizing the time between the camera and gps unit, the PC-based software links digital camera photos with the location where the photos were taken – no wires needed! GPS-Photo Link allows you to analyze your geotagged photos along with other data you have collected within a GIS system; or simply create word or html reports to share the geotagged photos and maps between organizations. GeoSpatial Experts offers GPS-Photo Link in three editions:
