BIRDING GPS and GEOTAGGING PHOTOS

Mark migratory routes as waypoints on your GPS for personal interest, spring bird counts or sharing within the birding community.

If you watch or study birds, any handheld GPS receiver in our product catalogue will mark sightings using waypoint features. (It's easy.) GPS is often used in environmental assessment processes, to record & map fragile plants and habitat. Data loggers like the GlobalSat DG-200 feature an all in one, cost effective portable GPS logging solution.

In the field, it's also easy to geo-reference bird sightings on a camera. Like the date & time stamp function on many digital cameras or with something like the WWMX Location Stamper from Microsoft, which is a free download, GPS coordinates can be stamped onto digital photos. You can record your data (i.e. location, image), then research or compile it later at home or the office. Data can also be compiled collectively, in a world wide media exchange if desired.The GlobalSat BT-335 Data Logger has a geotagging feature for digital photography - it's a GPS receiver. Other devices, like your own iPhone or Android phone now will also take geotagged photos, provided you have allowed your device to find your location. You can even enhance your location on your iPhone or Android with the Bluetooth Dual XGPS150A or Garmin GLO and get your location even out of cell coverage.

If you are an expert and/or have good field notes, a simple handheld GPS receiver can track your path and in relation to that any sightings. Whether it's orioles, warblers or buntings in New Brunswick, an olive-sided flycatcher on Mount Royal in Montreal, rebounding wood ducks in Ontario, or a piping plover at Last Mountain Lake in Saskatchewan, this technology is of interest to birders (bird watchers), ornithologists, wildlife biologists, ecologists, conservationists et al. worldwide.

It enriches any static Field Guide with live data about bird locations and counts. Data can be shared among users for projects, hobbies, tracking certain species. Professionals in the field can mobilize amateur enthusiasts for wider data collection and monitoring.
