Photo KML


PhotoKML can be used to Generate KML files that show pictures on the Google Earth map.
You can either import pictures that are already geo-referenced or link your picture with a GPS track.
The tool will generate a self contained kmz file that include all the icosn & thumbnails versions of the pictures.

To download Tracks from your GPS device, I recommend using GPS Babel+. It's a free user interface for the gps babel open source project.

GPSPhotoLinker is a MacOS freeware that can be used to save location and GPS position data to a photo.
