Aperture Applet-GPS Info in Aperture for the ADP
Just going through some of my images and wanted to share a very interesting and worthwhile feature I’m exploring within Aperture. Before I left I purchased the Nikon GPS unit GP-1 for the D7000. I’m not a big fan of labeling the exact location of every photo but for the Arctic Documentary Project this technology is a tremendous asset.
I hooked this little device up to the D7000 several times and it recorded those images with an exact GPS location that are noted as a small red pin on the Places section within Aperture. I can see this being extremely useful for documenting specific areas within the arctic for the Arctic Documentary Project. Could not be any more accurate way of making sure an image is placed in exactly the right time and place in history for future generations to compare their current imagery to. This is just one more small but very useful tool that Aperture brings to the table and one of several reasons I decided to start using this software. The one downside is that the device plugs into the side of the camera and makes it a bit uncomfortable to hold not to mention I’ve bent the connection at least twice. Was easy enough to straighten out but I’m guessing the connection is going to give at some point if I continue doing that. Will be extremely nice once all cameras have this technology built in and able to turn on and off at will.
