You Are Here: How to Geotag Your Digital Photos
So we all know your digital camera will record the date and time of a photo, but what about the exact location of it? Well, there are two digital cameras we can recommend that will geotag your photos, recording the exact coordinates (longitude and latitude, folks) where you took the photo. What can this do for you? Besides satisfying nerd needs, it's another way you can sort your photos and you could even create an interactive map of a recent vacation with images that correspond to points along your route.
Check out the Nikon Coolpix P600 ($466) and the iPhone 3G for affordable geotagging fun. Now you can still geotag photos taken with other cameras, you just have to do it manually with either software or hardware. For a detailed explanation, check out this article at MacWorld. Google Earth, iPhoto and Flickr are great software for geotagging. For hardware, you can check out the ATP PhotoFinder ($100) or the Gisteq PhotoTrackr ($90) -- these are devices you carry with you and use to record your location as you go along.
