This is a work around for importing GPS and waypoint data so you can geo-tag your photos.
Many cameras still do not have standard, a GPS feature that allows you to record the latitude and longitude coordinates along side the rest of the metadata in-camera. However, you can use software like Places in iPhoto ’09 to input this information in a nice, clean, some what straight forward interface. For example, in iPhoto 09 when you hover the mouse over any picture or event you may notice a small “i” in the lower right corner of the image. This is where you can enter title, description and location information. Location or geotagging can be done by entering either a name of a place, address or GPS coordinates of where the picture was taken. iPhoto will then search for possible matches and give you a selection to choose from. After a location is picked or GPS coordinates are entered, you can export your picture and have the GPS data added to the image file so the picture can be moved to other devices or programs. GPS data will still be added to the metadata even if you only enter the name of the place (provided iPhoto recognizes it). iPhoto will automatically enter the GPS coordinates for you.
Exporting your pictures.
You do this by selecting File…….Export, use JPEG or TIFF and make sure the “Include location” box is checked. Once you’ve exported the picture, open the picture with OSX Preview and select Tools…….Show Inspector, and you’ll find a new meta box that has your GPS metadata in it. This can also be done to multiple pictures at the same time by selecting a group or an event and clicking the “i” in the lower right hand corner. However doing this iPhoto will assume all pictures in said group or event are from the same location.
