A project about linking photographs to maps so that
any corresponding location can be identified.

Screenshots and usage information

Demo installation with examples of geoaligned images

Re: Linking Landscape Photographs to Maps

Very interesting project! I try to georeference all my outdoor photos, using either a GPS track from my hike or manually using GeoTag on the Mac (https://www.snafu.org/GeoTag/). It used to be easy to get photos into Google Maps/Earth using Panoramio, but that has been discontinued.

Your software seems to augment the information by computing the actual viewshed instead of just showing a dot where the camera was located. Is there a way to run it as a strictly local application without going through a browser and the security restrictions?

It needs a browser. Firefox is least annoying regarding security restrictions.

The program does indeed calculate the viewshed covered by the photograph, and it does so pixel-by-pixel, i.e. any point in the image can be clicked and identified in the map, and vice-versa.

As a hiker, last in the Jungfrau region in August 2019 (Aug 20 trip cancelled), I can relate to the area. Will explore the post in more detail at the weekend. Thanks for posting it.
