[prMac.com] Luxembourg, Luxembourg - Houdah Software today is pleased to announce HoudahGeo 3.2: one-stop photo geocoding solution for the Mac. With HoudahGeo you may "pin" photos to locations where they were taken. HoudahGeo may store latitude, longitude and altitude information right within the image file - invisibly with no loss of quality. HoudahGeo writes EXIF, XMP and IPTC tags.
HoudahGeo is tightly integrated with iPhoto and Aperture Places. It offers a myriad of ways to geocode and publish photos. HoudahGeo may publish projects to EveryTrail, prepare them for viewing in Google Earth and upload photos to Flickr and Locr.
HoudahGeo allows for automatic geocoding from GPS track logs or from iPhone reference photos. A GPS device is however optional. HoudahGeo provides several options for manual geocoding. The most popular of which being the Map Geocoding pane: this allows for finding and selecting locations on a map. HoudahGeo uses high quality Bing maps and satellite imagery.
