HoudahGeo 5.1


HoudahGeo is a one-stop photo geocoding and geotagging solution for OS X. HoudahGeo writes EXIF, XMP and IPTC geotags to JPEG, RAW and XMP sidecar files. GPS device optional.

Just like a GPS-enabled camera, HoudahGeo records latitude, longitude, and altitude information right to your image data file. Don’t have a GPS device? No problem! Just drop a pin on the map where you took your photo and HoudahGeo will tag it with the correct location.
