During the Month of December I am holding a contest in conjunction with the folks at GiSTEQ Corp.. We will be giving one lucky blogger a GiSTEQâ„¢ PhotoTrackrâ„¢ Lite of their very own.

Photo-A-Day #899d 09/24/07

I have a GiSTEQâ„¢ PhotoTrackrâ„¢ that was given to me by the fine folks at GiSTEQ to put through its paces. The GiSTEQâ„¢ PhotoTrackrâ„¢ is a great device. I’ve had mine since August and I have taken it on many many photowalks. The PhotoTrackr is a GPS device that captures your location as you move about. You synchronize your camera’s time to the GPS satellite time of the PhotoTrackr and you are good to go. When you return from taking photos you upload the photos into the PhotoTrackr software and GPS data gets added to each image’s EXIF data. What this means is that your images are now geotagged with the GPS data of the location you were standing when you took the photo.

But that is not all that the PhotoTrackr does. It records the entire trip that you took while taking photos and adds your images to Google maps. You can export the Google maps to your blog and you can also export your trips directly to Google Earth. Then you can organize and play back your trips to see all the places that you visited.

PhotoTrackr LitePhotoTrackrâ„¢ Lite – DPL700 is a newer model of the GiSTEQ PhotoTrackr product series. This particular model is mainly designed for travelers seeking photo tracking functions. Some great features to this device is that it runs on a single AA battery, and has a carabiner clip so that users can attach it to their backpacks or belt loops

Do you have another creative use for the GiSTEQâ„¢ PhotoTrackrâ„¢ Lite? I’m going to lend my GiSTEQâ„¢ PhotoTrackrâ„¢ to some of my sister’s high school science fair students to use in their science fair experiments that detail animals in specific habitats. By marking the exact location on the image itself this will help the students gather some much needed data.

For the most part I use the GiSTEQâ„¢ PhotoTrackrâ„¢ for Photowalks. Here are some of my photowalks while using the GiSTEQâ„¢ PhotoTrackrâ„¢.

To enter the contest please write a blog post detailing a trip that you are planning or one that you went on where automatic geotagging of your photos would be beneficial. Taking along a GiSTEQâ„¢ PhotoTrackrâ„¢ Lite will help you capture those locations. Wouldn’t you like to be able to retrace the steps you took around the Great Pyramids or even along the Las Vegas Strip. Maybe you go Lighthouse hunting in New England. heck you can geotag in your own back yard.
