Matt, Chris and I spent a mis-adventurous couple of hours downtown this afternoon toting the cameras around and trying to take some photos. I’ll spare the details about the dead battery and the wicked rainstorm as this is simply a post to draw your attention to THIS LINK which, when zoomed to the appropriate magnification will display the results of combining three bits of technology: a GPS, a camera time-synchronized to the GPS, and a bit of software that pulls our wandering coordinates from the GPS and embeds them into the meta-data of the photos. The result, as you might see, is an experiment in tracking some images of around downtown and the drive home.
If you look close, the technique is not quite perfect. One, it had some issue with the tall buildings and the storm getting a good location fix. Two, it didn’t work great for clusters of photos taken from about the same general area as it only updated the point every fifty meters — so all those pics got the same coordinate even if I was technically at a different location. Bugs yet to work out, but again: an experiment.
