RoboGEO

CNET Editors' review

We recently spent some time digging through boxes of old snapshots at our parents' house, and we thought it was kind of sad that so much information about the photos had been lost to the sands of time. Some of the photos had handwritten dates and locations on the back, but most of them were unlabeled. Fortunately for us, and the generations that will follow, digital images are capable of storing tons of information. RoboGEO allows users to easily attach latitude, longitude, and altitude information to images, ensuring that viewers will always know where the images came from.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive, with a helpful menu that walks users through each step of the geotagging process. Users simply select the images that they want to tag and then choose how they want to do it. There's a wide variety of options, including GPS tracklogs and waypoints, Google Earth, IPTC information, and manually entering coordinates. Once images are tagged, users can rename or redate them and have the location data saved in the image's EXIF information or displayed on the image itself. Users can even associate sound files with images, ensuring that you'll never forget what the rushing waters of Niagra Falls sound like. When users are finished, RoboGEO supports exporting to Flickr, Google Earth, and Google Maps. The program's online Help file is brief but adequate. Overall, we found RoboGEO to be an easy, intuitive way to add location information to digital images.

RoboGEO is free to try, but the trial version inserts random errors into the coordinates. The program installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.

    "Not a program for beginners."

    February 8, 2011  |   By brissetterj

    Version: RoboGEO 5.8

    Pros

    This program has something for everyone needs to put print on a photo. The program is super fast printing to the finial copy.

    Cons

    The program lacks a photo resize, should sense the size of the photo your working on and adjust the print accordingly. This program is not user friendly and only those with advance computer knowledge will be able to adjust the preferences.

    Summary

    A great program once you learn how to work it, the manual is next to worthless as each preferences needs to show what will happen if you change it's settings.

    "BEWARE of Billing"

    May 6, 2010  |   By NevadaSkier

    Version: RoboGEO 5.6.15

    Pros

    The program works as described. It would be nice if you could rename pictures, but it does geocode pictures very well.

    Cons

    The billing system will set you up with a $1.95 monthly fee and when you try to cancel it will not let you. Emails from Robogeo state it is the billing company, the billing company says to contact Robogeo.

    Summary

    Find another way to geocode, the software works well, but you do not need the billing problems. BEWARE!

    "Too expensive"

    January 10, 2010  |   By cyril_92

    Version: RoboGEO 5.6.13

    Pros

    a lot of functionnalities

    Cons

    too expensive

    the parameters interface isn't user friendly. too much parameters.

    Summary

    Too expensive, the shareware version is not fully fonctionnal

    I've founded better, after a long Google Resarch : fully functionnal and free software : http://fr.locr.com/ - Locr GPS Photo

    This software is fully integrated with google earth / google mapsand can geotag your pictures with an NMEA file provided by your GPS.

    "Excellent Program"

    October 25, 2007  |   By mwewe

    Version: RoboGEO 4.0.5

    Pros

    Good interface for complex operations. Imports/exports many formats. Can be used to simply export a route/waypoints to gpx or directly to Google Earth, etc. or geotag a whole batch of pictures and include them as waypoints. Makes beautiful output in Google Earth. Also exports routes and pushpins to Microsofts Streets and Trips. On-line documentation is quite thorough and well written. Program is stable and easy to install/uninstall. No time limit on evaluation, but points are scrambled, the only limitation. I've looked at dozens of programs and tested all those I could, and I like this the best of all.

    Cons

    Price has gone up to $39.95 - but still worth it in my view. I'd prefer documentation on local computer rather than on web - though it's updated easier this way. Ability to plot just waypoints/routes/tracks without images is not clearly stated, though easy to do.
