HoudahGeo 4.4 – Photo geocoding and geotagging.

HoudahGeo is a one-stop photo geocoding solution for OS X. Export geotags to EXIF, XMP and IPTC. GPS device optional.

Just like a GPS-enabled camera, HoudahGeo records latitude, longitude, and altitude information right to your image data file. Don,t have a GPS device? No problem! Just drop a pin on the map where you took your photo and HoudahGeo will tag it with the correct location.


  • Remember where you took your photos
  • Show friends, family and clients photos pinned to a map
  • Geotag photos of properties you sell, bridges that need repair, etc.
  • Use geotags to organize your photo library

HoudahGeo caters to two very different needs:

  • Geotagging for archival purposes using EXIF, XMP and IPTC tags
  • Geocoding for publishing to Google Earth, Flickr or locr

HoudahGeo works best in conjunction with a GPS track logging device or smartphone app. HoudahGeo connects directly to many brands and models of GPS track loggers. It also reads GPX, NMEA, LOG, TES, … and TCX files created by third party software.

HoudahGeo also allows for “geocoding using reference photos”. Take geotagged photos using a GPS enabled camera or photo. HoudahGeo can use these to tag photos taken with a regular camera.
