OK...  I am from the USA and we just haven't got it straight with Metric.  We should have been there years ago but ALAS we are not.  I do not want to convert everything to English from Metric in the altitude field.  Is there some way to change the software preference to indicate feet of altitude vs. Meters?

Please respond to my email :  bret@huishproductions.com if you have time.

Thanks.....  Bret

Hi!

HoudahGeo currently is hard-coded to display altitudes in meters. Having it display in feet however is a common request.

You may already key in values in feet. Just type "1012 ft" for HoudahGeo to automatically convert the value.

I tried that and it converted the feet to Meters, however I need to convert Meters to feet.  How do I do that?  When I geo-tag I want the altitude to be in Feet, not Meters.

Hi!

HoudahGeo still lacks the ability to convert Meters into Feet. It will always display altitude values in Meters. This is something I hope to address in an update.

Where would you like to see values in Feet?

I would need to check the EXIF and XMP specifications, but I believe these call for values in Meters.

I would like to see ALL values in feet.  I am importing the values into aperture.  I will see if aperture can do the conversion... however, it would be great if it were a preference in your software....  I will check it out and let you know if the aperture conversion works....

Hi!

The way values are displayed in Aperture should not be influenced by the way they are handled in HoudahGeo. The values are written to EXIF by HoudahGeo and read by Aperture. Aperture should know it is reading metric values and do the appropriate conversion if you request the display to be in feet. What I don't know is if Aperture has such an option.

I will try it in aperture and get back and let you know...  Just a word to the wise, there is a huge market section that has no idea what a "Meter" is...  Get back to you within 24 hrs...  THANKS
