I just discovered a very neat feature in iPhoto of which I was completely ignorant. (Gee, I wish Apple would actually provide some instruction documentation with their products!! :rolleyes:) If you use a camera that is equipped with GPS, you can see the geographical coordinates of your photos on a Google map in iPhoto. For example, here's the route of a hike we took into Panorama Meadows in Banff National Park, as shown by the approximate coordinates of various photos I took:
The more you zoom in on the map, the greater the detail, to a limit - this photo is as close as I can zoom in. Given that I usually take a couple hundred photos each trip, you can see that there is a limit to the resolution - not sure if the limit is coming from the GPS resolution of the camera or from the display capability of the map function:
Anyway, this looks like an amazingly useful feature for recording plant sightings!
