My wife and I were on a two week vacation in europe last august, and I got it into my head that having exact location of all of our photos would be a great way to preserve our memories to the umpteenth degree.
So I picked up a Visiontac VGPS900, a 2GB sd card, set the camera to the time at the location(s), and had a good time, thinking i'd sort out the whole geotagging deal when we got home.
Now that I finally have the time to get this sorted out, I see the time zone from the photos and the one I set on the camera don't match up (oops).
After checking the metadata on the photo times in Aperture, and doing the math correctly, the time zone conversion in HoudahGeo doesn't seem to come out right. The app gives me the option to set the time zone of the camera before it loads hundreds of photos to be geocoded, and by futzing up and down, after restarting the app and picking the photos each time, I'm able to get the photos to match the time on the CSV files. However, when I get all of the appropriate files imported, I don't see the app adding any lat./lon./alt. data in the columns next to the photos.
Is there yet another adjustment that needs to be considered in this Time Zone issue? I mean, the time listed in the upper right of the app window gives me the options of either America/Chicago, or GMT. Should that be set differently?
I'm at a loss here having spent probably $100 on hardware and software together just to be able to geotag, and it's just not working.
Anyone have an idea what the issue is?
