NANY 2012 Entry Information

Application NamePinPics
Version1.1.0
Short DescriptionView geotagged photos on a map!
Supported OSesWindows with .NET with WPF (Mono support not tested)
Setup Filehttp://downloads.aldwin.us/pinpics/1.1.0/PinPics.zip
System Requirements.NET 4.0
Author Infohttp://nick.aldwin.us/
DescriptionPinPics maps out geotagged photos from a folder.  It's a great way to see where you've been and to bring back old memories.  Try it with the pictures on your smartphone!
Features
  • Shows a map of the locations where you've taken pictures
  • Four different map types
Screenshots

Click to see more:
InstallationUnzip & run PinPics.exe
You'll be notified of updated versions when you run the program.
Using the applicationThe first time you run the program, you'll have to affirm that you have read the license notices.

Once the main window is loaded:

Click Load Pictures to pick a folder containing your geotagged images.
The photos will be displayed in the list to the left.  Check Only Show Geotagged Photos to hide photos with no GPS data.
Click a geotagged photo to zoom in on its pin in the map.
Double-click a photo to open it in your default photo viewer.

Pan around the map by clicking and holding the left mouse button.
Zoom into/out of the map using the mouse scroll wheel or the Zoom slider in the upper left.
Change the map type (road map, hybrid map, satellite map, or terrain map) using the dropdown in the upper right corner.
Click on a pin to zoom into it and highlight the corresponding picture in the photo list.
Right click to reset the zoom to view all pins.
UninstallingDelete the unzipped files.
PinPics also keeps track of whether you agreed to the license dialog, so if you're really intent on removing all traces, you'll find the file in the AppData folder wherever .NET put it.
Known Issues
  • Skips geographic data in photos with malformed or nonstandard EXIF (this is a library limitation)
  • EXIF doesn't contain GPS accuracy data, so in some cases the pinpoint may be the center of the unseen "accuracy circle" and thus may be a little distance away from the actual photo location (this is the camera's fault, unfortunately).
  • After a long period of use, the process may continue to run for some time after the window is closed.  This may be a cache issue.
Planned Features
  • Help!
  • Reset Zoom button (right now, use the right mouse button)
  • Show Date Taken under photo
  • Exif Library tweaks to pull out geo data whenever possible
  • (Tentative) Geotag photos from within the application

One quick request; could you change the colour from RED? It's a bit much at this stage  Wink

NinJA99, if you want to make any more changes/updates to the program before releasing it, let me know. It's a great app, and we want to get it screencasted as soon as possible. The way mouser and I know these apps are ready is when the authors change "Pledge" and/or "Early Beta" in the OP title to include the word Release.

I released this shortly before midnight, Chicago time.  I'm just taking the time now to write up a nice description with screenshots and such.  It'll be up shortly!

I've fixed the initial-startup bug, so anyone who was turned away by that should take another look!

Sure!  I'll put that on the planned features list & will probably add it in by tomorrow.

If you're fiddling in there... I'd probably find it even more perfect if the commandline allowed single files as well as multiple folders, as well as patterns (if it's not asking too much  Wink).

Single files and multiple folders I can do.  Patterns...well, depends what type of pattern you're looking for.

I might add in a search subdirectories option too.

Yep: Subdirectories seems obvious (but I didn't think of it Wink )

Patterns:
  • *.jpg, *.png
  • gps*.jpg

Patterns:
  • *.jpg, *.png
  • gps*.jpg

So, simple wildcard support would be acceptable?

Also: currently the GUI folder selection button only loads *.jpg and *.jpeg.  From what I can see, PNG files don't have provisions for Exif data, and I haven't tested with TIFF files.

 embarassed Too true: brain wasn't working, or not explicitly on that example. PNG doesn't have Exif tags, but TIFF does.

Well... according to ExifTool, there are heaps of file formats that have metatags, not all are very useful for this purpose though...
