Geotagging with locr and E71

As one of our readers (shunzee) posted, you can use 3rd party application called locr to geotag photos taken with Nokia E71. What you need to do first is to register on locr.com. Then download Symbian S60 3rd Edition installer and voila!

After registering your previously created account in mobile application, you can start taking photos by activating locr first. Right after a photo is taken the application asks if you want to add location information to photo’s EXIF file. Of course we do! You can upload geotagged photos to locr online album (100 MB free monthly upload allowed), but you can post photos to flickr, or anywhere else, too!

flickr hint: remember to set in your flickr profile’ page so that EXIF files for uploaded photos were allowed to be imported. Path for this feature is:

Your Account > Privacy & Permissions >Import EXIF location data: Yes

Example geotagged photo on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dexterus/2716859878/

[Update] If you have E71 you can download locr directly to your mobile with Nokia Download! application’s catalog.

    I am still waiting E71 in Hong Kong, China. . . .

    I find a software called “Location Tagger” in Nokia Labs. Would you please test if it can run on E71? (http://www.nokia.com/betalabs/locationtagger)

    Thank you very much.

    P.S. Your blog is well done!

    AFAIK Location Tagger by Nokia Beta Labs is desgiend for
    N-Series devices which support Shre Online v3.0. I’ll need to check it!

    Checked out the Beta Labs location tagger. It says it should work on any S60v3 device – just that sharing geotagged photos requires Share Online v3. Not a problem for me, really – personally I do all my uploading via my computer. 😀

    Not actually loaded it onto my day-old E71 yet… I’ll comment again when I’ve tested it a little.

    Even better geotaggin application for S60v3 devices (also works on mine E71). This is directly from yahoo labs:

    http://zonetag.research.yahoo.com/

    with tight flickr integration. Interesting feature is that
    is it can geotag photos by GPS coordinated (GPS turned on),
    and if you turn off your GPS this application will be geotagging your photos by using mobile cell id information.

    So generally speaking you can run this app 24/7 without
    being worried of battery drain and have all your photos
    at least approximately geotagged, and for if you need
    some photos to have accurate position indication you turn
    on your GPS for that particular moment.

    Worth mentioning is that you can upload directly to flickr too setting tags and some more information directly from application.
