Vacation time is coming! Wherever your travels will take you: You will, for sure, be taking a lot of pictures.
But: If your camera is not equipped with a built-in GPS, your pictures will lack location information. You could geotag these images by hand. This can be a lot of work and quite time-consuming. So, how can you add geotags more easily to your photos?
In a three-part series of blog posts, we will explore three options HoudahGeo offers to automate your photo geocoding process.

If you prefer to use a keyboard to type on your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV but don’t want to actually buy one, Type2Phone will allow you to use your Mac instead. Not only did you not need to buy an extra keyboard, but you also have one less keyboard cluttering up your desk.
Using your Mac as a keyboard has many more advantages:
