Some of you may be familiar with Ozi Photo Tool, or may have seen my GPS =
module for Gallery.
The technique allows you to automatically determine where you were when =
you took photos with your digital camera and then plot the locations =
with Google Maps / Earth.
I suppose many people do not access their photo albums online and will =
not use the Gallery module. So I made a new 'plugin / add-on' for =
gpsbabel that achieves the same effect.
How to use it :
The first 6 steps are the same as the Gallery module. See =
7. Patch your gpsbabel with the patch at =
At the moment I only tested it under cygwin and libexif-0.6.12. I =
make LIBUSB=3D INHIBIT_USB=3D-DNO_USB
8. Place all the photos you took on your trip in the same directory e.g. =
9. Run gpsbabel, e.g.=20
gpsbabel -t -i mapsource -f track.mps -o kml_photo -F =
10. Open the new kml with Google Earth. If you click on a placemark, the =
photo is displayed with a maximum width of 190 pixels. There is =
currently no easy way to see the full sized photo.
An example of the output is at =
http://www.rational.co.za/gpsbabel-1.2.8-kml_photo.kml (Without the photos).
kml_photo is an 'output-only' format. The conversion type is for tracks, =
even though the placemarks are logically much closer to waypoints.
Please tell me what you think.
