What is geotagging?

First of all, let’s start out on the right foot here with a brief explanation of geotagging, in case you’re new to the subject.

Geotagging is the act of adding geographical information (in the form of metadata) to some type of media, including photos, videos, websites, etc.

How do people use geotagging?

Geotagged photos are used any time people want to associate an image with a location. For example, say you want to document your vacation to Hawaii. You can geotag your photos and view them on a map of the island that displays exactly where each photo was taken. Or say that you’re big-time into fishing. You can take geotagged photos of each catch to document when and where you had the most success.

It’s a nifty way to catch a glimpse of places all over the world, or to find some sites you’d like to visit. All you need to geotag your own photos is a camera with access to GPS, which, conveniently, most smart phones have these days. Continue Reading…
