JOBO AG Launches photoGPS
Each time a photographer’s digital camera takes a picture with the photoGPS attached to the camera’s hot shoe, JOBO’s photoGPS automatically captures raw GPS data too and stores this information in its own internal memory. When the photographer has finished taking photographs, they unload their photos onto their PC in their normal way and transfer the companion raw GPS data information onto the PC with the included JOBO photoGPS software. Matching times and locations is quick and easy, since the photos and raw GPS data were captured simultaneously.
Next, the JOBO photoGPS server (accessible via the Internet) provides historic GPS satellite information corresponding to the times the raw GPS data was recorded. This is used by JOBO’s PC software to calculate the locations, reverse geocodes them, and geotags the photos with the resulting location information such as Country name, Region and District, City, Postal code, Street name, and nearby points of interest (POIs) such as tourist attractions, beaches, mountain peaks, museums, opera or theatre houses, concert halls, sport stadiums, parks, etc. In addition, Latitude, Longitude and Altitude are also available.
And the JOBO photoGPS consumes very little power. One capture just needs 18 Megajoule (MJ). It is the camera’s flash synchronization connection that instantly awakens photoGPS.
