    I got an Android phone, because I want to learn to geotag.
    Here's my situation:

    I am enrolled in a study abroad to Germany this coming summer, and I want to be able to geotag all the photos I take on my trip.
    I really want an app that will show me where I took my pictures, and let me look at them and the location on a seperate pc after I take them.
    The reason I want this is because I want my grandparents to be able to follow my European excavations as they occur online through my geotagged photos, as they themselves have had numerous such excavations, and have been to most of the places I will be going.

    Is there an app with just such interface??
    I've been using footprints on my HTC DROID ERIS, but it looks like it only lets me view them on my phone. I might be wrong about this.

    Does anyone have any geotagging preferences?

    On my HTC Hero running Eclair 2.1, the camera app has an option to store your location and also to upload to Piccaso Web Albums. Any photos uploaded will show your location in Google Maps...hope this helps

    Sorry to be pedantic, but are you sure you mean "excavations"? An excavation is an archaeological dig at a historic site. I would expect photos there to be made with professional equipment and to include precise spatial referencing, time-stamp and size scale. Perhaps you mean "vacation," "expedition" or even "escapade."

    Oh thank you!
    Your grammatical correction pointed me in the right direction of the app that I REALLY wanted all along! I'm glad you decided to be so helpful.

    Lockitt: Yeah, it looks like that's what I'm going to have to do. I may have to put more effort into it that I originally thought, though : )

    Mustang: It looks like that is a geocaching app. I'm not sure it does what I want it to.

    Not trying to be unhelpful, just trying to understand your requirements. You could have been doing a study-abroad program in archaeological excavations.

    Regardless of what I would be doing, the application I want would be the same.

    Is there an app that can be used to geo tag pictures taken with a conventional camera? Sony does a gadget that records a log of where you have been and then correlates the time stamp in the metadata of the pictures, say taken with your DSLR, with the position logged at that time. Even better, combine position and direction using the compass built in to an increasing number of phones.

    If you search appbrain (or the market itself) for "geotag" there are quite a few options that will help you tag photos from your digital camera.

    This one seems pretty slick:

    An android application for picture geotagging (Geotagger)

    Hi everybody, I am the developer of geotagger. I made some changes to improved the gui. It should be now more simple and understandable (I hope). Unfortunately I lost my application key, so I had to release it as another package. If you downloaded it, please reinstall manually from the market

    I only just got my phone and am still learning what it can do. I see an option in the camera settings for geotagging. Maybe this is a new feature since this thread was started?

    Well, ifb-online was asking for an app that allows you to geotag pictures taken with an EXTERNAL camera, such as a dslr (a reflex camera), which is exactly what geotagger does.
