Tracking and geotagging aerial photos

October 03, 2011  •  Leave a Comment

I recently got an ipad, and it’s been very useful to have on shoots. In the back of the helicopter an ipad is lot more convenient for notes and shot lists than bits of paper blowing around.

I used a great free App GPX Master to track the path the helicopter flew, and then used the GPX file it created to geotag all my images. You need a separate program on your PC or Mac to do the geotagging, but there are quite a few to choose from.

Check out the screen shot, the ipad is pretty accurate with the GPS position, and for the 2 hour shoot the GPX Master App used up about 20% of the ipad battery life at the highest accuracy settings. Not bad !
