GPS Fun with Geotagging Photos

One of the things I’ve wanted to do was photograph the features on the C&O Canal and be able to include the GPS coordinates of each feature and mile marker. Since I’ve been riding the canal on the bike, I have been using an “app” on my iPhone that records a track with GPS points along the way and the track can be saved and emailed to myself.

Fort Frederick, Maryland

On the computer, the new version of Adobe Lightroom can import the track into a new “Map” module. Using the date/time stamps I can insert the GPS coordinates into the images and view them on the map in Lightroom.

With the images geotagged, I was looking for a way to share the trip on the Web and discovered that my SmugMug account has a “Map This” feature.

So I have set up a selection of images from my Fort Frederick to Hancock bike trip for you to see the location of each shot. Check it out here.
