Create Geofoto to synchronize your photos!
The modern mobile phone is similar to a computer. We can connect to the internet, take pictures and videos, upload them and share with friends through the social media as well as other platforms. Nowadays you don’t need a computer or a laptop to write and receive emails. The phone is much more convenient for this task as you will even receive updates on very short time intervals.
When you using mobile phones that use the Android operating system: things are even better. There are numerous Apps that have been developed which help the phone even perform more tasks and efficiently. These apps are such as GeoLog. This is a very interesting application and one that you will enjoy using. The App basically saves the data of your phone’s sensors and calculates the site covered.
GeoLog is not a very sophisticated android App as one may think. The application is quite basic but performs wonderful tasks. Your phone has several sensors and some of these sensors you may not even notice them. Nonetheless these sensors perform crucial tasks on the phone to enable efficient and convenient usage of the phone. Some of the basic sensors that are installed in the phone include the accelerometer, magnetometer and the GPS. GeoLog will store the data obtained by these sensors and store them in a log file. The App will then calculate what is called the coverage of the site. This is simply the ratio of covering area to that of the site and it is usually expressed as a percentage.
The real magic comes is when this App synchronizes the data from the log file with photos that you might have taken with the phone’s camera or any other camera. What will appear is a geofoto. A Geofoto is a photo which has the camera orientation at the moment of shooting and geographic coordinates! Isn’t this exciting?
As mentioned earlier, GeoLog is just a basic App and there are no special skills that one needs in order to use this App. Just like any other App, you first of all have to ensure that you have an android phone and that it is compatible with the App. After this, you will download the App from Google Play store and install it in your mobile phone. That is all that is required and you will be ready to go. Once the App is installed in your phone, it will automatically start to save and synchronize data from the sensors of your phone and hence you can produce a geophoto whenever you need one.
GeoLog saves data collected by the sensors of the phone. However, it is common knowledge that some sensors of the phone turn off once the phone is shutdown. This way, the data would not be saved in the log file and this would not be accounted for during synchronization. Otherwise; this is an amazing App.
