See Mappero Geotagger in action

Mappero Geotagger is a geotagging application: it allows you to assign a geographic location to your photos. The location information is embedded following a standard format in the picture file itself, so that you won't lose it if you need to move the file around; and if you upload it to Flickr or other services which support the EXIF standard, other people will be able to find your pictures just by browsing a map.
The application is available under the terms of the GPLv3 open source license and runs on Linux, Mac OS X (64bit) and on Windows 2000 or later.

Features

  • Automatic downloading of maps from OpenStreetMap.
  • Visualize existing location information by showing your photos on a map.
  • Set or modify geolocation information by dragging pictures on the map.
  • Visualization of GPX and KML GPS tracks.
  • Automatic assignment of location information by correlating the time of the photos with the times of a GPX track (this process is often called correlation).
  • Graphic visualization of the photos on the map during the GPX correlation operation, with controls to specify time zone offset and fine-grained time adjustment.
  • Want to know if your favorite feature is supported? Ask me! (mention "Mappero Geotagger" in the subject, to avoid the antispam filter)

Mappero Geotagger supports all file formats supported by libexiv2; a list can be found here, but it seems to be outdated: more formats than those are actually supported (at least, I found that Mappero Geotagger can successfully geotag Sony ARW images).

Donations

Why do I say “donations”? Simple: because you are free to donate any amount you wish; chances are that you already got Mappero Geotagger in your hands, since it can be freely redistributed, therefore any donation is welcome. Just please notice, if you want to download the software from this site, you must donate at least the amount described in the paragraph above.
Any other donation amount will give you access to the mailing list, where new releases will be announced and where you can ask for any help in using the program, report bugs and suggest features.

It might take me a few days (up to three working days) to get back to you after I've received the payment, so please be patient.
