GeoJot – New Photography iOS App

Turn your iPhone or iPad 2 into a photo-based field data collection tool. GeoJot geotags your photos with more accurate GPS coordinates and allows you to jot down attribute data associated with each photo such as name, condition, value, etc.. GeoJot is a companion app created for use with GPS-Photo Link, photo mapping software for the PC. Use GPS-Photo Link desktop software to extract attribute information with the geotagged photos – create printed reports, ESRI Shape Files and GeoDatabases, Google Earth maps, watermarked photos, and more.

This app costs $59.95 in the App Store and you can download it here.

GPS-Photo Link


GeoJot is a companion app created for use with GPS-Photo Link, photo mapping software for the PC. Use GPS-Photo Link desktop software to extract attribute information within the geotagged photos – create printed reports, ESRI Shape Files and Geodatabases, Google Earth maps, watermarked photos, and more. You MUST use GPS-Photo Link desktop software in order to view the more accurately geotagged photos and accompanying attribute information outside of the iPhone/iPad environment.

Create customizable watermarked photos, word PDF or Google Earth reports. Use GPS-Photo Link to accurately map photographs for display in a geographic information system (GIS) such as ArcGIS. Perform advanced analysis in ArcGIS. Share the geotagged photos, data, and maps between organizations. Since 2001, thousands of mapping professionals have been using GPS-Photo Link.

GPS-Photo Link has two distinct Series. The GIS Pro Series is designed for users who wish to use advanced coordinate systems or include photos in professional mapping software such as ESRI’s ArcGIS. The Express Series is designed for users who wish to document where photos were taken but who will not include them in a professional mapping system.
