GPS Geotagging software
"These two products really simplify the process of geotagging and organizing digital photos by location, even without a GPS device," said Josh Weisberg, director of the Rich Media Group at Microsoft. "We'll continue to look for ways to simplify features like geotagging that help keep photographers organized."

As digital photography has gained popularity, so has the demand for geotagging tools. Photographers, both professionals and enthusiasts, want the ability to quickly identify the location of their images. With the Pro Photo Tools, photographers have a lot of flexibility in how they tag their photos, including RAW formats. They can gather location information from a variety of sources and apply it to the metadata in their images, drag and drop images on a map, determine location names based on GPS coordinates, and assign GPS data to images that are missing it.

"Geotagging is a hot new area in digital photography, and like other popular digital photo features, I expect photographers will be asking themselves how they ever lived without it," said Ron Glaz, analyst at IDC. "Until now geotagging has been hard to do, requiring special expertise and tools. The time has come for an application that even the weekend photographer can use. Microsoft's initiative of leading the way and making geotagging accessible to pros and enthusiasts alike is a step in the right direction."
