Title: From GPS data to IPCT and Keywords
Post by: vbuzzi on September 14, 2009, 08:49:41 AM
I'm trying to to populate Location, City,Country frm the gps data in EM2
I have tried this:
http://www.beardsworth.co.uk/news/index.php?id=P1211
but every time I try to launch the script I get:

Necessary object: 'isoCodeNode'
Error:0 Scode:800a01a8

Did I miss something?
I already use some of the great scripts done by John Beardsworth.

I'm evaluating to buy the gps device for my Nikon camera and I want to automate part of the keywrding process.
Is this possible?

I use GeoSetter for a semi-automatic way. GeoPic II - the GPS receiver from Custom Idea - puts the geocoordinates into my files when shooting. I then download the files to my comp, import them into xMedia, use the light table view to cull. When that is done, I select one photo and sent it to GeoSetter, which I defined as a Helper Application. This takes me to the folder containing the file, where I can then

a) correct any wrong coordinates [from time to time I get a 0°/0°],
b) put in missing coordinates,
c) get floor names for IPTC fields.

When that is done and saved to the files, I go back to xMedia, <Ctrl>+b to re-import EXIF, <Ctrl>+<Alt>+b to import the new IPTC data [make sure to 'merge, prefer catalogue'].

GeoSetter is Windows-only donation-ware.




[Edit]
Deleted my preferred keyboard key indicator for 'b' since it was interpreted as HTML.

I'm triyng Geoseteer and works fine.

I have  little problem, sometimes I want to copy only GPS data to an image but I also change the Date Creation, there is a simple command to copy and paste only GPS data to one or more pictures?

I solve saving a template with only GPS data.

I own two cameras. As I told you I'm evaluating to buy the Nikon GPS.

What would you suggest?
What is your equipment / workflow?

Thanks.

As for GeoSetter. If I understand you correctly you should just open the 'Change metadata' dialogue, which you find by selecting the images you need and then click on the 6th button from the left in the toolbar. Fill in the appropriate fields, click 'Set Current Values For All Selected Images ...' and a window will open to let you check which data are written to the files selected.

Even simpler, but with a catch [date and time is a GPS datum!], select the image with the coordinates you want to apply to several files, click on the red balloon button with an arrow to the right. Now select the files you want to put these data into and click the red balloon with the arrow to the left. Easy to remember on my system, where the map resides on the rioght monitor and the thumbnail browser on the left.

With the help of an on-line translation tool [and some typing for non-text text] this short article on GeoSetter (http://www.dh2publishing.info/HTML/Fototechnik/Geosetter.html) might help you.


I have my two Nikon, dSLRs, D2x and D200, both outfitted permanently with Custom Idea's GeoPic II (http://www.customidea.com/shop/product_info.php?products_id=126&rep=dh2pb). The GeoPic is set up such that it will only get satellite data when the camera is ready to shoot [it's set to green]. The rest is outlined in my previous post. There's another article (http://www.dh2publishing.info/HTML/Fototechnik/Geotagging2.html) in German on GPS hardware for Nikon cameras.

Thanks.

How did you get them there, and where exactly are they now?

Using GeoSetter the location fields are filled in and the values for them are written into the keywords area of xMedia. If only the location fields are filled you will need a script to read the values and write them to teh keyword area.

Question 1
Is there  a way to tell to tell to GeoSetter to write Location,Country,State not only into teh IPTC fields but also into the Keywords field?
or
Do you know a script for EM to take the IPTC Location,Country,State fedls and tranfer them to keywords?

You are really polite and you have a lot of patience...
But if you come to Milan I will offer you a nice dinner...
Thanks.

Check the Data Preferences under Settings, third block from the top, should explain itself [I've unchecked Country Code, I think because GS uses two-character while all other progs I use prefer three-character].

Script questions are best directed at John Beardsworth, who provides some very useful scripts (http://www.beardsworth.co.uk/iview.php?group=iview) on his Web site. One of them seems to be what you look for.
