[prMac.com] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Luxembourg - September 24, 2007 - Houdah Software has updated HoudahGeo to version 1.2.8, their one-stop geocoding application for Mac OS X. HoudahGeo allows users to link, or "pin" photos to the location where they were taken, without the need of a digital GPS camera or a GPS device. This information may then be exported to EXIF tags, as well as to Google Earth KMZ files. Such a file allows for browsing photos within Google Earth.
HoudahGeo is a pure software solution for geocoding photos with latitude, longitude and altitude information. Just like a GPS camera, HoudahGeo can store this information right within the image file, invisibly with no loss of quality. Unlike a GPS camera however, HoudahGeo allows the direct export photos directly to Google Earth.
HoudahGeo may operate in a fully automatic mode when provided a track log file from a GPS receiver. Finer control is possible by attaching photos to waypoints created using a GPS device. When no GPS device is available, manual geocoding is possible through integration with the Google Maps service.
New Features, Enhancements and Fixes:
New feature: It is now possible to copy coordinates from one image to another.
Enhancement: The map window now loads significantly faster.
Enhancement: The map window now remembers settings from previous use.
Enhancement: Image previews are now faster to load.
Enhancement: The automatic geocoding alogorithm has been improved and allows for command line fine tuning.
* Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later

* 22.3 MB Hard Drive space.
