Hi All,

I bought your great Sofware with the Name:HoudahGeo.

Now i have one Problem to create the GPS Data File in my Pictures(Exif Data File).

At first i get my .gpx files from my PC, because i use a Navilock GPS Logger, Model BT-455PDL

Second i load my pictures on my Mac/ create with my Handy Samsung S8300.

Now, i have both Typs,what i normaly need.

I Drag and Trop both pictures into the Window HoudahGeo Program ( The Pics are in Red Color)

Now i select Load File from Data.

After the process are done, i open my Pictures with I Photo V 7.1.5

 But there is nothing new to see, into Photo InformationWindow.

I can work on a PC, i have on Program with the Name GPS Photo Tagger, but i like to Work on my I Mac.

I the Future Time i like to by an i-Blue 747a+ GPS Logger.

Is my Camera not the right Typ?

Thank you and best regards

Steffen from Germany

Hi Steffen!

I believe you missed one step. You need to export metadata to EXIF/XMP for it to be added to the image files. Only then is it accessible to other applications. Until then it is stored only within the HoudahGeo project file.

Hello Pierre,
thank you for your fast answer!

Now i do it again Step by Step:

I took on Photo of my travel, open this photo, then i open the gpx file.

I go to the button Exif Tags write-the Program do something.

I save the Project in the same Folder as i save the Photo.

Under the Button:

Export Metafiles, i select:

1.only selected Photos/Yes
2. Geocode Photos/ No
3.work on Original Photos/Yes
4.copy Files/No
5.XMP Files/No
6.XMP Files create/No

Thank you

Steffen

Hi Steffen,

Do you now see the geotags in third party applications?

Hi Pierre,

No, i think i make a mistake,

Into your Software Window:

1:Name of the Photo (there is my Photo)
2:Timestamp (there is the Date of my Photo
3:latitude-Nothing
4:longitude-Nothing
5:Height-Nothing

Then i open the gpx file,

i saw the Track 201/03/05_17:37 one Way logged.

Then i write the Exif  Data from my Photo, but nothing works ;-)


Nothing News, sorry.

Steffen

Hi!

Upon loading the GPX file into the project, your photos should show latitude and longitude. If they don't, you probably have specified the wrong camera time zone.

Could you email me the GPX file as well as one sample photo?
What time zone is your camera set to?

Best,

Hi .. if it's helpful, I have the same symptoms.  I just purchased HoudahGeo and this is my first time using it.  EXIF does not update my Aperture Library ...

It seems the program may be having trouble with the Aperture 3.1.2 Library..
~/Pictures/Aperture\ Library.aplibrary/Database/Library.apdb


1) Aperture 3.1.2  Mac OS 10.6.7

2) Permissions of my Aperture Library
ls -l "/Users/parker9635/Pictures/Aperture Library.aplibrary/Database/Library.apdb"

3) Checking /var/log/system ... I found these messages 
I had 28 images I was trying to update ...

Hi!

Sorry to hear you are experiencing problems.

Aperture locks its database while it is running. This prevents HoudahGeo from reading it. As a workaround, HoudahGeo creates a copy of the database. This seems to fail on your machine.

Please verify if there is a Library-readonly.apdb file. If yes, please remove it.

Please verify that there is enough disk space to duplicate Library.apdb.

Please verify that you have write rights to /Users/parker9635/Pictures/Aperture Library.aplibrary/Database/.

Best,
Pierre Bernard

Pierre, thank you for your advice .. I was simply wrong and wasn't using the program properly. After I followed your advice, I realized that I had made a simple error.  The entries in the system.log file were real, but weren't the cause.

My root cause was that somehow I corrupted the timestamps in the Track file I was using before I gave it to HoudahGeo.

This happened when I used MacGPSpro to convert the gpx file to csv and then back again into gpx.

I was trying to make some adjustments to the altitude field by reading in the csv format into Excel, zeroing out the altitude field, and then using MacGPSpro's elevation feature to write out the file in gpx with corrected altitude.  I didn't notice that the timestamps were corrupted by Excel in the process.

Hence, HoudahGeo wasn't able to match the Track waypoints to any images.  I was new enough to your program that I didn't recognize that was the problem.  When the images are matched the text in the list window goes from red to black with the coordinates filled in.  My image file names were all red until I used an unaltered Track file and found the root cause of my mistake.

Everything is working now and I really appreciate your program.

So thank you again, and sorry for taking your time.

best regards,
parker
