Geotagging in Antarctica, Patagonia, Rwanda and Tanzania with PhotoTrackr Mini DPL900

March 10th, 2012 |  by No comments

GPS photo tagging, also known as geotagging, is the process of embedding a digital photo with latitude, longitude and even altitude data.  I like gadgets and for the past several years I have been searching for an inexpensive but accurate way of geotagging my images. I am a Canon user and while there are many devices for Nikon cameras there are relatively few for Canon.  Ironically the iPhone does a great job.
My search for a device that would work with all my Canon Cameras became more imperative because I was writing a book on Lightroom 4 and it was clear during development that LR4 was going to include a Map Module. I called my friends at B&H on a regular basis and kept asking what do you have for GPS and Canon? I further complicated my request because I wanted to be able to work with Raw files. Finally just before I went to Antarctica in December, my good friend Gabe found me a device to try. The GistePhotoTrackr Mini DPL900 is an inexpensive $49.95 device which works. The Skytrag GPS chipset allows you to precisely record and review your trip. I used the device extensively in Antarctica and then again in February 2012 in Rwanda and Tanzania.

When my device arrived I was totally psyched until I tried to use the software that comes with the device which is nothing less than atrocious. The Gisteq PhotoTracr application required all kinds of finagling to get it to work on Lion Mac 10.7.3 Lion and even after getting it to work the software was tough to figure out and is really suitable for jpegs and not for tagging raw files. I was ready to give up and then discovered an awesome piece of software called myTracks from the Apple Application store. My Tracks was a dream and I was able to geotag my images and export a track log which I was able to import into Lightroom 4 and fully take advantage of the Map Module.

MyTracks is an awesome application. Here we have a track from the gorillas in Rwanda showing the altitudes during each shot on our hike in the rain forest.

 

The track log is easily imported into Lightroom 4
