IsWhere from Red Hen Systems Adds Pictures to Google Earth

Fort Collins, Colo., October 12, 2006 - Red Hen Systems, Inc. announces the release of IsWhere(tm) for Google Earth, a simple, easy-to-use utility that displays where GPS-tagged photos were taken. IsWhere works with any image that has Global Positioning System (GPS) data stored in the image's EXIF header. This new utility provides a method for photographers and photo analysts to quickly verify and communicate the spatial location of photos. With a right mouse click or drag-and-drop selection, users pass images to IsWhere to quickly display them and their locations inside the Windows version of Google Earth.

IsWhere is a great way to see "what is where." Whether you are documenting an accident scene, comparing potential building sites, or monitoring a right-of-way, IsWhere gives you the power to easily see where each photo was taken. Save the photos in your favorite places or email the photos to others for them to map and view. IsWhere makes it easy to SNAP, MAP and SHARE your world.

Creating a Red Hen Photo that has GPS information embedded with the digital photo can be done in several ways. GPS data can be written to the photo at the time of collection with different integrated camera/GPS solutions such as the Nikon digital SLR cameras (D1X, D1H, D2Xs, D2X, D2H and D200) with Red Hen's DX-GPS, or with the Ricoh Caplio Pro G3 GPS-ready digital camera. Alternately, using only a GPS and digital still camera, images can be matched with a GPS log file using Red Hen's patented time-matching methodology, available in two packages: 1) PixPoint(tm) for ESRI's ArcGIS software, and 2) MediaMapper(r).

IsWhere is a free download when you buy either the Red Hen DX-GPS for a Nikon camera or the Ricoh Caplio G3 from Red Hen. Separately, IsWhere retails for $29.95. To download a copy, visit
