Are you wondering what the photo georeferencing “feature” in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is like? Find a photo that has latitude and longitude already encoded in its EXIF metadata. Open it with the Preview Application, turn on the inspector, and voila, under the “More Info” tab you get the metadata above a small world map:
You can’t edit the GPS data, and the built-in map is about as rudimentary as you can get, but the Locate button takes you directly to the view in Google Maps in your web browser. That’s a smart bit of outsourcing, but it’s not as if the third-party photo georeferencing tools currently running on the Mac are in any danger of being outpaced by the operating system. And it’s also a bit curious that neither iPhoto nor Aperture have a built-in mapping solution in a time when photogeoreferencing has gone mainstream. HoudahGeo, GPS Photo Linker, Geotagger, PhotoInfo and LoadMyTracks have nothing to worry about.
