No one has really answered the original poster's question yet, but this is one answer:

I use FastStone Image Viewer, a free program, and Google Earth. You bring up your image in FastStone Image Viewer, move the curser to the right of the screen to bring up the EXIF data panel, then left click on the little earth picture at the bottom of the panel. This activates Google Earth which zooms in on the exact location where the picture was taken. You are then looking at a satellite image of the spot where you took the picture, usually within a few feet. This image can be zoomed in and out and moved around to look at adjacent points of interest.

I take cruises to different places around the Caribbean and the Bahamas. It is often necessary to use GPS lat/lon figure out on which island the image was taken since they all have similar topography. I have found other fun uses of this data also.

Thanks! I'll give this a try. It looks like exactly what I was looking for.
