I was just pouring through folder after folder of photos of existing stuff at a college campus sent me by a client. They are adding buildings, but I will also see some existing context in my renderings. OK, so where are all these pictres taken from? Sometimes I get a shot-keyed plan. Not this time.

Doesn't it make sense to have a digital camera built with a GPS device to automaticly record the position of each photo in its metadata or a seperate data file (my Nikon make an info.txt file to store aperature and other settings per shot)?

Well I've gotta say, Burden, you are the first, and possibly the the only guy in the universe to come up with a legitimate need for such a thing and, guess what?

The Ricoh G3 can take a GPS that replaces the standard CF card. It can even record its orientation!

What's more, it can integrate with some aerial photo system and shows the camera views on a map.

I found it by accident while trawling for a different Ricoh. I thought "I'm amazed Neil Blanchard hasn't heralded this to the world."
Maybe in item 1001!!
