Easy Image Locator takes a folder which contains at least one .jpg image with a timestamp and a .gpx file which contains at least one track whose trackpoints contain timestamps. The software then compares each image's timestamp with the trackpoints' timestamps; the geographic location of the trackpoint whose timestamp differs least from the respective image's timestamp are assumed to be the location where the image has been taken. A new output file is created (in .gpx or .kml format), and for each image, a waypoint is written to the output file. Every waypoint is at the location where the respective image has been taken, is given the name of the respective image, and is linked to the respective image.
- The output files are well-formed and valid (they pass the XML tests at validome.org).
- The deviation between the camera's time and the GPS device's time (if any) can easily be specified and will be automatically accounted for.
- The software is extremely simple to use.
- The software does not need to be installed; it just can be run.
- The software does not perform any changes on its input data.
