geography and photography

2004-04-02 18:04:15.388651+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Oh yeah, other idea of the morning: Among my gazillion other projects, I'm writing this über photo organizing software, which can arrange things geographically, by subject, by date, and so forth. One of the things I've been thinking about building is a little GPS logging device that plugs into the flash socket on a camera and stores the current position whenever the shutter is clicked.

My "duh" moment: All I need to do is interpolate the image time from the digital image with the trackpoint times from a conventional GPS device.

I'm not saving and restoring state yet, but I can see being at a point where I can draw the maps, save and restore assorted outlines, and download path data off of a Garmin GPS device.

I haven't worried about installation systems yet, and I'm not sure if all of the modules exist for Windows, but I hope that this time I'll actually have something I can lay on you that might even be barely functional shortly.
