Big news: HoudahGeo has reached 3.0!
HoudahGeo 3.0 is a complete rewrite with a focus on ease of use and performance.
HoudahGeo now presents itself with an all-in-one-window interface. The window has three 3 states: load, process and output. At each stage only the currently required elements are shown. While loading images and track logs into the project, a media browser gives you access to your iPhoto, Aperture and Lightroom libraries. During the process stage coordinates and metadata are added to images. For this HoudahGeo shows a map and an inspector pane next to the list of images. Once you are ready to output the newly created metadata, only toolbar buttons for export and publishing operations are shown.
HoudahGeo 3.0 also brings new features. Probably the most welcome addition is the support for many more GPS devices. This was made possible by several excellent open source projects: GPSBabel, igotu2gpx, iTU4l/sr2x and rgm3800.py.
The new offline reverse geocoding feature lets you perform reverse geocoding at top speed without requiring an Internet connection.
HoudahGeo is now also able to add keywords to your images.
The often requested printable manual also finally became a reality.
HoudahGeo 3.0 requires Mac OS X Snow Leopard or Lion.
Single-user licenses are priced USD $30.
Single-user upgrades are priced USD $12. These are sold exclusively by the shop built into HoudahGeo 3.0.
Customers who activated their copy of HoudahGeo on or after June 1, 2011 receive a free upgrade. The HoudahGeo 3.0 demo version will recognize and honor the existing license file.
