HoudahGeo is an all-in-one app for geocoding and geotagging your photos, so you can keep track of where they were taken and upload them to sites like Google Earth and Flickr.

HoudahGeo provides a variety of ways to link your photos to geographic locations (using exportable EXIF, XMP, or IPTC tags), whether you're using a GPS track-logging device or you're entering locations manually, with coordinates, a built-in map, or Google Earth. You can even just take occasional, lower-quality reference photos (for example, with your iPhone 3G), and HoudahGeo will automatically geocode photos taken with your higher-res camera later based on the time frame. HoudahGeo supports most popular photo-library software, including iPhoto, Lightroom, and Aperture, and you can publish to EveryTrail.com. The most-recent updates have also added higher-quality maps and satellite images. (Although note that HoudahGeo now no longer supports Mac OS X 10.4.)

With its stability, broad set of features, quick and intuitive workflow, and extras like KML export, HoudahGeo is an excellent option for anyone who needs photo geocoding.

Developer's Description

Add GPS coordinates, location names, and metadata to photos.

HoudahGeo is a photo geocoding and geotagging tool. Use HoudahGeo to attach GPS coordinates and location names to your photos. Location information adds to the "story" of a photo. A photo pinned to a map has context. A series of tagged photos documents the path taken. Unfortunately, many digital cameras still lack GPS receivers. This is where HoudahGeo steps in. HoudahGeo tags digital photos with GPS location information. HoudahGeo writes future-proof EXIF and XMP tags to JPEG and RAW image files. Just like a GPS-enabled camera.

HoudahGeo adds geotags to JPEG and RAW image files. This creates a permanent record of where a photo was taken. Just like a GPS-enabled camera. Industry-standard EXIF, XMP, and IPTC geotags allow photo cataloging tools to organize and find photos by location. Geotagging with HoudahGeo follows an easy 3-step workflow: Load, Process, then Output.
