Ovolab releases Geophoto

Ovolab today released Geophoto, a new Mac OS X application for browsing, collecting and sharing digital pictures. Ovolab Geophoto displays photos on a three-dimensional representation of the Earth, pinned to the location where each photo was taken. The user can pan, zoom and fly through the photos, thanks to high-resolution satellite images of the Earth. Users can easily drag their pictures to a specific location on the globe in order to "geotag" them. Once geotagged, a picture can be shared with other users and will automatically appear in the correct location on the Earth when opened in Geophoto. Previewed at Macworld Expo 2007 in San Francisco, Geophoto allows users to view the picture in the context it was taken in, and to visually relate the photo to other pictures taken nearby. The software integrates with iPhoto, allowing them to browse albums' photos on the Earth and add geotagging information to photos that are not linked to a specific location yet. It is available for $50.

Through Geophoto, users can also subscribe to iPhoto photocasts and browse photos on Flickr, where a vast community of people around the world already shares geotagged pictures.

A connection to the Internet is not required for placing photos on the Earth or for browsing the iPhoto library: Geophoto includes high-resolution satellite imagery and can work with local image files, the company said.

Ovolab says its application supports 3Dconnexion's Space Navigator three-dimensional input device, which augments Geophoto's ease of use and speed with an intuitive way to navigate through space. In addition, Geophoto supports GPS data stored in JPEG files, Camera RAW images and other formats.
