Several weeks ago someone had posted a comment in the Geotagging Flickr discussion forum about a new geotagging program called Geosetter. I downloaded the software before the holiday break, but didn’t have a chance to try it out until my Tigerville excursion this morning.
The program opens up with a fairly simple interface and an integrated Google Maps view. You can select individual images or a folder and match those to an existing GPS track. You can also manually geotag the images. One nice thing about Geosetter is that it will also geotag RAW files. It also has the standard time offsets, etc, that one would expect with this type of program.
When I tried this out with my images from today, I was quite pleased with the results. Robogeo and GPicSync had a tendency to drop all of my images in one location if they couldn’t figure out where the images belonged. Geosetter seems to have done the best job of tagging the images accurately. There were a few that it couldn’t geocode, so it just left them alone
The simplicity and accuracy of this program means it will probably be my go-to program for automatic tagging. When I get a chance, I’ll try to check out a few more of its features, but for now I like what I’m seeing.
