Geotagging pictures has become popular of late. Basically the idea is to tag your photos with information regarding the location that they were taken. This seems to be used a lot by people that do a large amount of traveling, and wish to remember exactly where each picture was taken. If you’re one of those people, but doesn’t want to hassle with going through all of your pics and manually adding tags (and trying to remember where each was taken) this little gadget might be of interest.
This little gizmo is basically a GPS receiver and card reader bundled into one. It keeps track of everywhere you’ve traveled via the GPS signal and logs exactly what time you were at each location. All you have to do is carry it with you when you’re out snapping pics. When you’re done at the end of the day, just pop in your SD card (or use it with a USB card reader if you don’t use an SD card) and it will automatically assign a geotag based on the time each photo was taken.
I’m sure that there will be a market for this device when it hits stores in the next couple of weeks. It’ll set you back $99, which seems pretty reasonable for all the hassle it will save you.
