Fun With Our Geotagger

Craggy Gardens, Craggy Pinnacle and Craggy Dome Overlook.

As many of you know, Betsy and I have a geotagger, which allows us to assign GPS coordinates to our photos.  Once the photos have been ‘tagged’, it’s possible to use Google Earth to show the location at which the picture was taken.

On our way up the Blue Ridge Parkway to Mount Mitchell, we stopped at Craggy Gardens Visitors Center to taken in the view.  The picture above of the Craggy Pinnacle Tunnel was taken from a small overlook across the parkway from the Visitors Center.

While there, I also took this picture of the Burnett Reservoir down in the valley below.  (This is the same picture I posted yesterday).

On our way back from Mount Mitchell we stopped at Craggy Dome Overlook to get this picture.

Perhaps it’s just me, but I enjoy seeing both the picture and its location.

    Your geotagger sounds lots of fun. I got interested when Betsy wrote about it months ago. I believe some cameras have them built in now.

    I think my brother would love the geotagger for his travels/photography in Calif. Hope you and Betsy have a good day.

  3. Linda G. Says:

    I got interested in the geotagger, too, when Betsy wrote about it earlier. Thus far my interest has gone only as far as checking it out on the Internet. Other purchases keep knocking the geotagger to the back burner.

    Beautiful pictures George. You know how much I love my geotagger! I got Patti a camera for Christmas that has a built-in GPS so the pictures will come out of the camera with the coordinates.

    The geo tagger is really neat, but I’m actually mesmerized by the snow on your blog!
