Who  : Rob Anderson
What : GPicSync -- "GPS Pictures Synchronization"
Date : Mon 9 Nov 2009
Time : 7 PM to 9 PM
Where: Room 301, Morse Hall, UNH, Durham, NH

  Next month, Rob Anderson and the rest of the SLUGgers hope to
investigate GPicSync.  From the project's website:

"GPicSync automatically inserts location in your photos metadata so
they can also be used with any 'geocode aware' application like
Picasa/Google Earth, Flickr, loc.alize.us, etc.  Features include:

    * automatically geocode your photos (in the EXIF header)
    * use a GPS tracklog in the GPX format or NMEA format (multiple
selection possible)
    * Support elevation data if present in the tracklog
    * create a Google Earth KML file to directly visualize the
geocoded photos and track in Google Earth
    * create a Google Maps file to publish your pictures and track on
the web (more)
    * Automatically associate audio or video files in Google Earth and
Google Maps
    * create a Google Earth KMZ file (containing your geolocalized
pictures and tracklog)
    * add additional geonames and 'geotagged' metadata (for automatic
tagging in Flickr for example) and create an automatic IPTC caption
    * manually write latitude/longitude in a picture EXIF or a
selection of photos
    * handy tools integrated (time correction tool, EXIF reader, GPX
inspector, rename pictures with date/location, ...)
    * supports JPEG pictures and many RAW formats
    * many human languages"

  I'm not exactly sure what that all means.  I guess I'll have to
attend to find out!  :-)

The meeting proper ends around 9ish, but it's not uncommon to find
hangers-on there until 10 or later.  They take place in Room 301 (the

Hampshire, in Durham.
