GeoSpatial Experts has released an updated version of its flagship photo mapping software, GPS-Photo Link Version 3.0. GPS-Photo Link automatically links digital photos with data from GPS, says the release. After linking to data to the digital image, GPS-Photo Link creates a web page featuring photos watermarked with the GPS information, topographic maps, and satellite images. ESRI Shape Files are also created, allowing the viewing of the photos in ArcView using the supplied plug-in tool.
This Version 3.0 from the US-based company, allows the user to link AVI movies taken with a digital camera to GPS data. The position of the resulting watermarks on the photo can be manipulated placing it either at the top or the bottom of the photo, outside of the image itself.
As well as adding new features, GeoSpatial Experts has made the software even easier to use. With version 3.0 all information about the location of the picture is stored in the EXIF headers in the JPEG file created by GPS-Photo Link.
According to the release, this new version also supports the Ricoh Caplio Pro G3 digital camera with GPS, introduced last month. This is the only camera available with a built-in GPS card. Sold exclusively by GeoSpatial Experts as a bundle with GPS-Photo Link.
