MetaPhoto Converts Geo Data to Photo Metadata

Taking pictures on your iPhone gives you a great deal of data embedded in to your photos. Location, camera type, exposure, even camera orientation. But what if you want more. Well, MetaPhoto (currently available on the iPhone) aims to further enrich your photos. Using the Urban Mapping API, MetaPhoto looks up a great deal of information about the area a photo was taken and adds it to the photos header.


The level of information available is rather impressive. Ranging from simple information like address and neighborhood information, to rich location data like population density, and useful information like female percentage for an area.

MetaPhoto is currently available for the iPhone in a free and paid version. You can get it from the iTunes App Store. And, of course, the app shows what is also available via the API. Check out our Urban Mapping API profile for more.
