Geotagging Data in Picasa

I’ve just opened up Picasa for the first time in ages.

First thing I noticed was how lightening fast it is compared to iPhoto. It’s blazing!! But just scanning through the photos I noticed a small red pin next to images I’d taken with my iPhone.

Turn outs that Picasa now has a ‘Places Panel’ which uses Geotagging data to show where your photo was taken. Picasa will write the longitude and latitude to the photo’s EXIF metadata. You can also view the data (GPS Latitude and Longitude) of a geotagged image in Picasa by selecting Properties.

The integration is really nice too.
