Houdah Software released HoudahGeo 2.5

Houdah Software today is pleased to announce the release of HoudahGeo
, the premiere photo geocoding solution for the Mac. HoudahGeo is
tightly integrated with iPhoto’09 and Aperture Places. It offers a
myriad of ways to geocode and publish photos. The latest of which is
geocoding from iPhoto reference photos.

HoudahGeo 2.5 has adds full integration with Aperture 3. Upon geotagging
photos with EXIF & XMP tags, HoudahGeo may notify Aperture that new
metadata is available. This allows for Aperture Places to immediately
refresh. This brings the same level of integration to Aperture which was
previously reserved to iPhoto’09 places.

HoudahGeo is also able to access iPhoto, Aperture & Lightroom
databases without opening the actual applications. Thus iPhoto and
Aperture users may now handle the whole geocoding workflow within
HoudahGeo and still find their Places database to be up-to-date.
Enhancements brought along by HoudahGeo 2.5 include:

  • New feature: Full Aperture 3 integration:HoudahGeo may now notify Aperture 3 when it has written new metadata.
