How to use a GPS device to tag shots

Tag the location of your photographs

Geotagging devices are a must for any travelling photographer’s kit bag. They solve the problem of wondering where in the world you took a photo by tagging in image using GPS (Global Positioning System). This means that as well as recording the time and date, you can also note the latitude and longitude coordinates.

There are more laborious methods to do this, such as using downloadable software or entering the information manually, but the photoGPS from JOBO is a nifty little tool that does the job for you. It’s a unit that you mount onto your camera’s hotshoe that captures the geo-data of each picture when you press the shutter. Some cameras have GPS built-in, but for those that don’t this gadget is a good investment. The software included even places your images on a virtual map so you can plot your travels.
