Good stuff
It has been discussed before but here is another one that works through OziExplorer


All you need is to record you track with a gps (any type that can communicated with OziExplorer) while taking photos and then when finished download the track, save it in OE format (*.plt). One trick is to photgraph your gps time screen so you can dtermine time offset between camera and gps. There is a setting in the program that applies the offset to ensure correct correlation of position with time.

One good thing about using OziExporer/Ozphototool for this is that the actual image can be stamped with coordinates (and other data) and you can also create a waypoint file of photo locations with the photo attached to the waypoint - ie click on waypoint displayed on a map in OziExplorer and the photo will open. This is all done automatically so little effort required.

All good fun

Oziphototool is a brilliant bit of software. I use it a lot. I like how it can generate a Google Earth kmz file complete with pictures.
