January 12, 2008 in Software (E)


Luxembourg - January 12, 2006 - Houdah Software is proud to announce the release of the 4th major update to HoudahGeo in only 8 months! HoudahGeo 1.4 is a pure software solution for geocoding photos. Coordinates may be written to EXIF/XMP tags. Images can be uploaded to Flickr! or exported to Google Earth. No GPS camera needed. GPS track logger optional.

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, convenient manual geocoding is possible through integration with Google Earth.
