How to Easily Geotag DSLR Photos

Maybe you got a fancy new DSLR or mirrorless camera for the holidays that you'd like to use for your wildlife photos, or maybe you've been using one for awhile. Either way, if your camera doesn't have built-in GPS, it can be difficult to get accurate location information for iNat.

Here's a video showing a workflow for using a smartphone or handheld GPS unit to easily geotag your photos and not worry about getting accurate location info either later or in the field. The GPS app in the video is Motion-X GPS for iOS. If anyone has suggestions for a great Android GPS tracking app, please share in the comments!

Simply spectacular videos, Tony. These are phenomenal -- and I use them all the time when I tell folks about iNat!

Having the option to add GPS to my locationless images this way has been a huge help. There were a few year-end bonus $$ left after I treated myself to complete Battlestar Galactica and Babylon 5 DVD sets so I gave myself another little holiday gift of a Lightroom license. Used it today to tag some (crappy) photos and can't wait for better weather and more life out there to shoot with my "good" camera! :D
