GeoPodcasting – Adding Location to Audio

  1. “Mapping Hacks” Hack #59 claims to address geocoding audio files and such, using a script from the perl Geo::Track::Log module. Unfortunately, I’m guessing that all that’s really being done is taking a list of timestamps (that you have to supply yourself) and simply interpolating the position from a supplied track.
    (Sadly, the URL given in the book appears to be useless – it gives a picture of the “Mapping Hacks” book cover and a link to the blog postings there, and the promised “more on geocoding, mapping arbitrary data, and creating online voice-annotated travelogues.”)

    It doesn’t appear that the sound files from either freesound or soundtransit are what I would think of as “geotagged” – the actual files when downloaded appear to contain no geographic information in their tags, so all of the geographic information is apparently stored separately somewhere in their servers’ databases.

  2. (Oops typo: The end of that second paragraph should read
    “[…]and the promised €œmore on geocoding, mapping arbitrary data, and creating online voice-annotated travelogues.€ are nowhere to be found as far as I can tell.)”
