Photowalking Hollin Hills


I went for a short photowalk in the communities of Hollin Hills, Milway Meadows, and Mount Vernon Square in order to field test the latest update of the MotionX GPS app for Apple iPhone. I hoped to be able to record a GPS track with embedded geotagged photos, suitable for display using Google Earth. Well, two out of three ain’t bad, right? As it turns out, I was able to use Google Earth to combine the GPX track exported from MotionX GPS with a Picasa Web Album of the photos taken by MotionX GPS’s in-app camera. You can see the result by clicking on the following file: Picasa_23Feb2011.kmz. (Editor’s Note: Google Earth must be installed on your computer.) Details in a follow-up post regarding how I did it. By the way, Photo 6 of 6 shows holes drilled by sapsuckers in the trunk of a Blue Atlas Cedar.
