    Q: Adding Coordinates from GPS Logs EXIF Data

    Hi All,

    I have a Garmin GPS and while on a recent holiday kept it turned on for most of the time I was taking photos.

    I'd like to now enter the Coordinates from the saved Track Log into the image EXIF data. This has been a want for me for some years, however I've only pretty much just gotten started on the project.

    Any recommendations on which software to use?

    G'day,

    I use a program called GPicSync It was last updated on 2009-04-13 but i find it does its job well and haven't found the need to look elsewhere.

    You can find some more information on the program here

    Does anyone know if Lightroom 3 can do this with an extension? or what do you use?

    Just a couple of questions first:
    - do you shoot raw or jpeg and do you need the coordinates to be available in the source file?
    - what format are the files from the Garmin in?
    - where do you need to connect the software in the workflow? Will stand-alone software do?
    Ciao, Joost

    All feedback is highly appreciated!

    If you are using Lightroom, the easiest way us with Jeffrey Friedl's Geotagging plugin. Just select your photos, go to File -> Plugin Extras -> Geotagging, then load your GPX file and enter the time offset that your camera was out by and voila, geotagged photos.

    Just be careful if your entering them manually, and what coordinates are being used. Hopefully they'l be a World UTM but some GPS's will work on a local map grid or on different projections.

    Havn't actually delt with geocoding photos myself but I know a thing or two about maps being a geographer :P
