Geotagging in iPhoto

So seems like geotagging is the cool new feature!  It is nice to know that EOG already supports it! I guess I was right on time when I wrote the map view plugin some months ago!

Now, who wants to write the code needed in F-Spot to display the pictures on a map with libchamplain? I can give help but C# isn’t my cup of tee (I am way too busy!).

    Bah, geotagging… I loved face recognition in Google Picasa (Web Albums)… gotta try that in iPhoto. What a pity it features only native Flickr and Facebook uploader (which supports geo and face data).

    Are there any FOSS face recognition libraries yet?

    None that I know of. I did a school project on face recognition. Detecting the presence of a face isn’t that hard, but saying “is this the same person” is fairly harder :(

    There’s library called opencv. You may want to give it a try.
