[prMac.com] Outlook, Washington, USA - Calf Trail Software, LLC today announced the release of Geotagalog version 1.5. This upgrade to their GPS-based geotagging utility is free existing customers, although the price of Geotagalog has been raised to $25 with this release. Version 1.5 includes many significant improvements to tracklog handling, including direct support for an additional format.
Used with a GPS logger, Geotagalog takes the work out of iPhoto's Places feature. It automatically combines digital photos with location data from a GPS tracklog. While the user adjusts camera time corrections for better alignment, Geotagalog shows a live location preview with mouseover thumbnails. After any adjustments are made, the photos are geotagged and imported directly into the user's iPhoto library for them. This is all done with ease, thanks to Geotagalog's straightforward interface.
In version 1.5, the geolocation calculations have been revamped internally to deliver even better results, and to give more control over photos taken while the user's GPS logger was off or without signal. Geotagalog now also displays waypoints from formats that support marking locations while taking pictures. By combining these waypoint markers with Geotagalog's existing drag and drop mouse interface, a user can now make any necessary adjustments with greater accuracy.
Another exciting addition in Geotagalog 1.5 is direct support for the FAI Gliding Commission IGC flight recording format. This allows pilots of gliders and other sport aircraft to geotag photos taken in the air with precise latitude, longitude and altitude metadata.
Summary of new features in 1.5:
* Better handling of photos outside of tracklog range
* Waypoint marker display
* Even more sophisticated interpolation algorithms
* Direct support for FAI Gliding Commission flight recordings (.igc)
Taken together, these improvements represent a major step forward. More users can now geotag more photos from more occasions, with less hassle.
* Free update to existing customers
* 13.4 MB download
* Free quantity-limited demo available; full version costs only $25, up from $19.95 (USD)
* Universal Binary, Mac OS X 10.5-10.6
