Other smart phones

Photographs taken from any smartphone with GPS location enabled can be emailed to a PC and uploaded to NatureMapr from there. This method also works on iPhone and Android if you don't have the app.


Method 2 - Cameras with in-built GPS sensor (Easy)

Many modern digital cameras feature an in-built GPS location sensor. If your camera has one, then simply:

  1. Ensure the GPS feature is enabled in your camera's settings
  2. Photograph your sightings
  3. Transfer your photographs to a PC and upload them to NatureMapr

Method 3 - Cameras without a GPS sensor (Advanced users)

If your digital camera does not have an in-built GPS location sensor, you can use the GPS location sensor on your smart phone to record the location information and overlay it back onto your camera's photographs at a later time.

To use this approach, you need two pieces of software:

  1. An app on your phone to record your location into GPX format: (GeoTagr for iPhone)
  2. Software on your PC to overlay GPX information onto your images: (GeoSetter for Windows)

Once you've embedded the location information onto your images, you can upload them to NatureMapr.
