Selecting this option loads the Preferences screen where you can specify various program settings. The items listed are either those that apply globally or those that cannot be specified elsewhere.

To set an option in the RoboGEO preferences, select it from the tree view and then enter the new value into the 'Current Value' box. Click the 'Save' button to save it.

If an item requires a True/False value, select the appropriate option. Other items require that you type a value directly into the textbox. Some items, such as the Datum, require an additional input form - double click on the 'Current Value' box to load it. If the field is a URL or media file, double clicking on it will load it into the associated program.

You can save your current configuration by selecting 'Save' under the Preference's 'File' pull-down menu. By default, saved config files have an RCF (RoboGEO Config File) file extension. Note that the program only saves those values that differ from the default values.

Some settings specify file paths and some of those are dependent on the location of the RoboGEO installation folder or dependent on the Windows user's Documents folder. For example, on your computer the StampLogoFilePath setting may be C:\Program Files\RoboGEO\YourLogo.png. If you exported a config file and then tried to load it on a computer where the installation folder was D:\RoboGEO\, the C:\Program Files\RoboGEO\YourLogo.png path would not exist. For that reason, if a option's configured path does not exist, the program will look for it in a list of predefined locations as documented for that specific option. In the example above, after not finding YourLogo.png in C:\Program Files\RoboGEO\YourLogo.png, the program would then look for it in D:\RoboGEO\.

There are 3 ways you can open a previously saved RCF file. The 1st is by loading a local file by selecting the 'File->Open->Local File' pull-down menu option. The next way is to load it from the web by selecting the 'File->Open->From the Web' pull-down menu option. You may need to load it from the web if you're part of a team that must use a common config file. The 3rd way is to load it (either a local file or a URL) from the roboge.exe command line. Since saved RCF files only contain the preference items that differ from their default values, you may need to reset your preference settings to the default values before loading the RCF file.

You can reset all of your preference settings to the default values by selecting the Preference's 'File->Reset' pull-down menu. Note you can also do this by passing /DEFAULTS on the robogeo.exe's command line.

You can specify the URL associated with the Preferences form's Help button by setting PreferencesHelpButtonUrl and you can display a custom message when the form loads by setting PreferencesMessageAtStartup. Using these 2 settings along with the program's ability to load a config file from a URL allows you to coordinate and communicate with multiple users who must share the same program settings.

UseOnlineHelp

If True, the program will use the online help system instead of the local (CHM) help system. The default is to use local help.

EditOriginalImages

If True, the program will overwrite the existing images when they're processed.

If False (the default), you'll be prompted for an output folder and the images will be copied to and processed from there, i.e. the original images will not be modified.

This must be set to False if you specify multiple options on the robogeo.exe command line.

Note: You can override this setting when renaming or redating images.

BackupOriginalImages

If both this and EditOriginalImages are True, the original images will be backed up to a new folder under \My Documents\RoboGEO\Backup\ before they are processed. The name of the new folder will be based on the current time and will be of the form yyyymmddhhmmss. For example, if the time is 4:49:01am on December 31, 2007, the new folder will be named \My Documents\RoboGEO\Backup\20071231044901\.

JpgQuality

Specify the image quality to use when saving JPG files. This can range from 1 (lowest quality, highest compression, smallest file size) to 100 (highest quality, lowest compression, largest file size).

As the quality increases, so does the resulting file size. High quality is good. Large file size is bad. The goal is to reach a happy compromise where the quality is acceptable without having huge files. The default value of 98 produces reasonably sized images with no perceptible loss of image quality.

The program writes EXIF and IPTC data in a lossless manner, so this option doesn't matter when you're only doing that.

Datum

Specify the datum. The datum that you select should be the same as your GPS unit and/or the same datum that's associated with the tracklog files that you import. Select WGS 1984 if you're unsure.

Double click on the Current Value box to select a recognized datum from the list.

AltitudeIsFeet

If True, altitudes are expressed in feet. Otherwise, meters are used. The units are used for display purposes only, like when stamping images or displaying trackpoint statistics. Altitudes are always written as meters when saved to the EXIF headers, regardless of what is specified here, because that's what the EXIF specification requires.

If your GPS unit doesn't support altitude data and if you never manually enter the values, it won't matter what you use.

CoordinateFormat

The program will display location values in this format. DEGREES will use decimal degrees and MGRS will use the Military Grid Reference System. Note that the 'Images -> Stamping -> Footer -> StampLatLonFormat' setting controls the coordinate format when stamping images. You'll need to restart the program for the change to take effect.

CameraOffset

You can automatically determine this value by selecting the 'Camera Clock' option under the 'File' pull-down menu.

This option allows you to compensate for an inaccurate camera clock. The camera offset is specified in seconds and is added to the GPS time so that it matches the camera's time.

To geocode images from a GPS tracklog, the camera's time must be in sync with the GPS's time. If they aren't, there will be errors in the image locations as described here.

The camera offset should be positive if the camera clock is ahead of where it should be or negative if the clock is running slow. Normally, you should simply ensure that the camera clock is accurate by using the method below and specifying zero for this option.

This option isn't intended to be used for specifying the UTC offset for your time zone. Use the UtcTimeBias option for that or let the program determine it automatically by looking at your computer's time zone information.

The best way to ensure that the camera's clock is accurate is to simply set it so that it matches the GPS. Turn on your GPS and go to the page where the time is displayed. Assume that it shows 11:22:02. Now go to the setup screen in your camera where you set the time. It doesn't matter if your camera displays seconds or not. Set it to the next highest minute (11:23 in this case) and wait for the GPS to reach that time. When it does, save the camera time. Be quick.

Since camera clocks drift, it's a good practice to do this fairly often and, at least, once on the day before you take any pictures.

Note that some GPS units don't support the display of daylight savings time. In you live in a locality that does and if it's in effect, the time that displays on your GPS will be 1 hour behind (or ahead of) the actual local time. Don't be alarmed by this and don't think that you need to set a 3600 second offset or set your camera's time back an hour to account for it. Just ignore the 1 hour error because it's not really an error. GPSs always use UTC time - the local time that a GPS displays is for human eyes only.

When your camera and GPS clocks are in sync, the camera offset should be set zero.

If you must specify a camera offset, either type it in or double click on the Current Value to load an interactive form. The form gives you 2 methods for determining the camera offset:

For the 1st method, when prompted whether to load an image of your GPS unit showing the time, select 'NO'.

You'll then be prompted to enter the offset (in seconds) between the camera and GPS. If the camera's time is behind the GPS, the number should be negative. Otherwise it should be positive.

For example, if the GPS time is 11:30:00 and the Camera time is 13:31:01, the offset would be 7261 (2 hr + 1 min + 1 sec = 7261 sec). Note that the offset is positive since the camera time is ahead of the GPS time.

The 2nd method is the "picture of the GPS" method. To do that select 'Camera Clock' from the 'File' pull-down menu, set the appropriate options, then press the 'Set CameraOffset' button. Note that the "picture of the GPS" method isn't as accurate as manually setting the camera's clock to match the GPS. A GPS only displays time in 1 second increments, so the error in automatically determining the offset can be as great as 1 second. On the other hand, when you're manually setting the camera clock, you can probably do that with a maximum error of about 1/4 of second if you're quick.

If a tracklog is loaded when you change this option, you'll be prompted whether to adjust the tracklog timestamps to account for the new value. If you choose yes and if you're geocoding images from multiple cameras that have different time settings, you won't have to reload the common tracklog each time to account for different cameras.

UtcTimeBias

You can automatically determine this value by selecting the 'Camera Clock' option under the 'File' pull-down menu.

Time zone boundaries are political things and because of that, your GPS knows nothing about them. Knowing nothing about time zones, your GPS also knows nothing about your current local time. All your GPS knows is UTC time. UTC stands for "Universal Time Coordinated" and it is, for all practical purposes, the same as the local time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. For example, in the summer when daylight savings time (another political thing) is in effect, it's 5pm in London when it's 10am in Los Angeles.

Your camera only knows the time that you set for it and, since you're a human, you probably set it to your local time. If you set it to UTC time then it's just like your GPS - it only knows UTC time. Your camera only knows the time that you set for it.

Since your GPS only knows UTC time and since your camera (presumably) only knows local time, you need to equate the two. That's the purpose of this option. Using it, you can specify the difference between your camera's local time and your GPS's UTC time and in doing that, the program will be able to sync your GPS data with your camera's data.

To do this, specify the number of minutes that your camera's clock was ahead of or behind Greenwich Mean Time at the time you took the pictures. The number should be positive for areas west of Greenwich England, like Canada and the USA. For areas to the east, like India and Australia, the number should be negative. NOTE: the number of minutes is per the camera's clock at the time you took the pictures since that was the applicable time with respect to the photos.

For example, in New York City, NY USA during the summer when daylight savings time (DST) is in effect the UtcTimeBias should be 240. Note that it's positive and that it's expressed in minutes. In the winter when DST isn't in effect, it would be 300.

If your camera's clock is set to UTC time, set this option to 0.

If you specify -1 (the default), the program will automatically determine the bias by looking at your computer's time zone information. This can be problematic if your camera and computer are not set to the same time zone, if Windows cannot accurately report whether DST is in effect for your locale, or if DST changes between the time you record a tracklog and the time that you use it to geocode images.

If a tracklog is loaded when you change this option, you'll be prompted whether to adjust the tracklog timestamps to account for the new value. If you choose yes and if you're geocoding images from multiple cameras that have different time settings, you won't have to reload the common tracklog each time to account for different cameras.

CmdLineAutoModePlayWav

Specify the local path to a WAV sound file. If robogeo.exe is started in automode by using the /a command line parameter, the sound file will be played at program startup. You can double-click on the file path in the associated text box to preview the sound.

If the program can't find the file at the indicated path, RoboGEO will first look for it in the folder where robogeo.exe resides, then in the Windows user's Documents folder, and then finally in the RoboGEO folder that exists under the Windows user's Documents folder.

CmdLineAutoModePrompt

If True and if robogeo.exe is started in automode by using the /a command line parameter, you'll be prompted at program startup whether to cancel the execution of the other command line parameters. This prompt occurs after the WAV file is played.

CmdLineAutoModeLogFilePath

Specify a file path to an ASCII text file. When the program is started in automode by using the /a command line parameter, status information and/or errors are written to this file instead of being displayed to the user. The file is created if it doesn't currently exist.

If not specified, the log file will be named AutoMode.log and will be located in the current Windows user's 'My Documents' folder. Note that because of that, different Windows users will have different log files.

If the program can't find the file at the indicated path, RoboGEO will first look for it in the folder where robogeo.exe resides, then in the Windows user's Documents folder, and then finally in the RoboGEO folder that exists under the Windows user's Documents folder.

CmdLineAutoModeLogFileArchive

If True and if the log file size exceeds what's specified in CmdLineAutoModeLogFileArchiveSize, it will be renamed to a dated format (YYYYMMDDHHMMSS with an extension that matches the original log file name), compressed, and then added to an archive named LogArchive.zip located in the same folder as the original log file. Once added, the original log file will be deleted.

CmdLineAutoModeLogFileArchiveSize

Specify a number between 65536 and 2147483647. When the log file size (in bytes) exceeds this number, it'll be archived per CmdLineAutoModeLogFileArchive.

CmdLineAutoModeLaunchGoogleEarth

If True and if exporting to Google Earth (/g) in automode (/a), the generated KML or KMZ file will be launched in Google Earth upon completion.

CmdLineAutoModeLaunchGoogleMaps

If True and if exporting to Google Maps (/m) in automode (/a), the folder containing the generated files will be launched in Windows Explorer upon completion.

CmdLineAutoModeLaunchShapefile

If True and if exporting a Shapefile (/h) in automode (/a), the folder containing the generated files will be launched in Windows Explorer upon completion.

CmdLineAutoModeLaunchDxfFile

If True and if exporting a DXF file (/c) in automode (/a), the generated DXF file will be launched in the Windows program associated with the .DXF file extension upon completion.

CmdLineAutoModeLaunchMapPointFile

If True and if exporting a CSV file for MapPoint (/b) in automode (/a), the generated CSV file will be launched in the Windows program associated with the .CSV file extension upon completion. Note that MapPoint isn't usually associated with .CSV files - that's usually a spreadsheet program.

CmdLineAutoModeLaunchGpxFile

If True and if exporting a GPX file (/b) in automode (/a), it will be launched in the Windows program associated with that file extension upon completion.

CmdLineAutoModeLaunchHtmlFolder

If True and if exporting HTML (/w) in auto mode (/a), the folder to which the HTML files were exported will be launched in the associated Windows program upon completion. The default is False.

CmdLineAutoModeRemoveUngeocoded

If True when running in auto mode (/a), ungeocoded images will be automatically removed from the selected image list and the requested operation will proceed. If False, the default, the operation will abort.

CmdLineImgLoadGeocoder

When only an image path is passed on the robogeo.exe command line, the image is loaded and added to the grid just as if you selected it from the pull-down menu. In addition to that and if this is set to True, the Google Earth geocoder will load and allow you to quickly (manually) geocode the image.

To use this efficiently in your normal workflow, it may be necessary to temporarily associate robogeo.exe (instead of your normal graphics program) with the image format that you're dealing with. That way when you launch an image file, it'll automatically load in the Google Earth geocoder. Another option is to eliminate the association with the image format. When that's the case and when you try to launch an image file, Windows will prompt you for the program to use - select robogeo.exe or your normal graphics program depending on what you want to do.

In Windows XP you can change an association by loading Windows Explorer and then selecting Tools-->Folder Options-->File Types. In Vista, select 'Default Programs' in the Control Panel.

CmdLineTracklogExportGoogleEarth

When only a tracklog file is passed on the robogeo.exe command line, the tracklog is loaded just as if you selected it from the pull-down menu. In addition to that and if this is set to True, it'll also be loaded in Google Earth, allowing you to quickly view it.

This serves as a very quick way to view tracklogs, so you may want to manually associate robogeo.exe with .GPX files on your computer.

CmdLineTracklogExportGoogleEarthThenEnd

If just a tracklog is passed on the command line and if CmdLineTracklogExportGoogleEarth is True, robogeo.exe will automatically end after it launches it.

CmdLineCmdLineDotTxtUse

If this is True and if CmdLine.txt exists in the same folder as robogeo.exe, the contents of that file will be used for robogeo.exe's command line. If something is also specified on the command line, it'll be ignored, i.e. CmdLine.txt overrides what may exist on the command line.

CmdLine.txt should be plain ASCII text and contain a single line of text that conforms to the requirements of a normal robogeo.exe command line. For example, CmdLine.txt may contain a single line of text that reads (without quotes), '/p:c:\robogeo\projects\hike.rgw /s /e /g /a'. That CmdLine.txt file would be equivalent to starting RoboGEO using the command line parameters 'C:\Program Files\RoboGEO\robogeo.exe /p:c:\projects\hike.rgw /s /e /g /a'.

There are other options that relate to the use of Cmdline.txt command line file including CmdLineCmdLineDotTxtDeleteAfterUse, AutoStartLaunchApp & AutoStartWaitForCmdLineDotTxtExist. The intent of this feature is to allow you to develop independent applications that dynamically create the CmdLine.txt file so that you can control RoboGEO's behavior when running in automode.

CmdLineCmdLineDotTxtDeleteAfterUse

If True, Cmdline.txt is deleted after it's used. You should usually do this if you're using a 3rd party application to dynamically create the file.

AutoStartDelCmdLineDotTxt

If True, Cmdline.txt is deleted at program startup.

AutoStartLaunchApp

If specified and if it represents a local file path to an application, the application is launched at program startup. What robogeo.exe does after it launches the application depends on what you specify for AutoStartWaitForAppEnd, AutoStartWaitForCmdLineDotTxtExist, and AutoStartWaitTimeOut.

If the program can't find the file at the indicated path, RoboGEO will first look for it in the folder where robogeo.exe resides, then in the Windows user's Documents folder, and then finally in the RoboGEO folder that exists under the Windows user's Documents folder.

Your application could, for example, preprocess images or dynamically create the CmdLine.txt file.

AutoStartWaitForAppEnd

If the application associated with AutoStartLaunchApp is launched at program startup, robogeo.exe will resume either when the application ends or when there's a timeout.

AutoStartWaitForCmdLineDotTxtExist

If the application associated with AutoStartLaunchApp is launched at program startup, robogeo.exe will resume either when this file path exists (such as c:\robogeo\CmdLine.txt) or when there's a timeout.

AutoStartWaitTimeOut

If the application associated with AutoStartLaunchApp is launched at program startup, robogeo.exe will resume if the application has not ended in this amount of time. The number is expressed in seconds. If you specify -1, the program will wait indefinitely for the program to end.

AutoEndLaunchApp

If specified and if it represents a local file path to an application, the application is launched asynchronously before the program ends.

If the program can't find the file at the indicated path, RoboGEO will first look for it in the folder where robogeo.exe resides, then in the Windows user's Documents folder, and then finally in the RoboGEO folder that exists under the Windows user's Documents folder.

IsSpeedy

If True, some of the visual effects associated with the user interface will be turned off, which may speed up the application on slower computers.

This has no effect on the program's functionality - just how it looks. The default value is False.

MainFormForceWidth

If both this and MainFormForceHeight are non-zero and valid for your screen size, the main form's width will be set to this many pixels. Set this to 1280 and MainFormForceHeight to 720 to force HD mode.

MainFormForceHeight

If both this and MainFormForceWidth are non-zero and valid for your screen size, the main form's height will be set to this many pixels. Set this to 720 and MainFormForceWidth to 1280 to force HD mode.

GridInputLatLonFormat

This is the required format when typing latitude and longitude values directly into the grid. It does not apply when entering values via the 'Edit' pull-down menu - only when typing directly into the grid.

There are 3 formats to choose from: DD (decimal degrees, the default), DM (degrees and decimal minutes), or DMS (degrees, minutes and decimal seconds). These are case sensitive and must entered exactly as shown. For example, if DD = -87.2554, then DM = -87 15.324 and DMS = -87 15 19.44.

You must include spaces between the degrees, minutes and seconds. You can include as many decimal places as you wish. Specify a leading minus sign as required, but never include leading zeros.

After you enter the number in your desired input format, the program will automatically convert it to decimal degrees for display in the grid.

GridRowHeight

Specify the height, in pixels, of the grid rows. The default value is 18.

GridFontSize

Specify the grid font height in points. Depending on the font, the actual font size may differ from what you specify here. The default is 8.

GridFontFace

Specify the grid font face. The font must exist on your system. The default is MS Sans Serif.

FolderPickerShowFiles

If True, the folder picker dialog will show files in addition to folders. The default is False.

PreferencesHelpButtonUrl

If specified, this URL is launched when the 'Help' button is pressed on the Preferences screen. If blank, the program's normal help file will be loaded.

PreferencesMessageAtStartup

If specified, this text is displayed when the preferences screen loads.

UseMilitaryTimeZones

If True, military style time zone descriptions will be used on the camera clock form and, additionally, when a military time zone is selected, the associated time zone designator will be written to the StampUseMilitaryTimeDesignator preference setting.

ForceStepOneExpanded

If True, the Step #1 node in the task pane will be automatically expanded and all of the other ones will be closed.

IncludeEditTimestampsReminder

If True, a reminder to correct the photo timestamps will be including in the taskpane under Step #3.

PreserveImageDiskDates

If True, image disk dates are preserved when data is written to the EXIF, when stamped, when auto-rotated, or when they are renamed. Otherwise, the image disk date reflects the date when the image was last modified. The default value is False.

StampTitle

If True and if an image title exists, it's stamped at the top of the image. The header font size is automatically determined so that the title is as wide as possible without exceeding the image width and without being taller than 3.25% of the overall image height.

StampTitleUseIptcHeadline

When stamping images if both this and StampTitle are True, the program will use the IPTC headline for the header text instead of the EXIF title.

StampTitleFontFace

Specify the header font face for stamped images. The font should be a TrueType and must be installed on your system. The default is Arial.

StampTitleFontSize

Specify the header font size. If you enter 0 (the default), the program will automatically determine the optimal size so that the width is as wide as possible without exceeding the image width, but never being taller than what's specified by StampTitleFontSizePercentage of the overall image height.

StampTitleFontSizePercentage

When StampTitleFontSize is 0, the program will automatically calculate the font size so that it's as wide as possible without being more than this percentage taller than the image's total height. The default is 3.25.

StampTitleFontBold

When True, a bold font will be used for the header. Note that making a font bold also makes it wider.

StampTitleFontColor

Specify header's 24-bit long font color. This ranges from 0 (black) to 16777216 (white). The default value (12632256 = gray) corresponds to RGB(128, 128, 128). Red is 255. Green is 65280, yellow is 65535, blue is 16711680, etc.

StampTitleFontOpacity

Specify the header font opacity. This should be a whole number between 0 (invisible) and 255 (totally solid).

StampTitleBackgroundBrightness

This controls the brightness of the header text background and it should range between -100 (solid black) and 100 (solid white). Numbers in between those, like 0, result in a partially transparent background.

StampLatLonFormat

Specify the latitude/longitude format to use when stamping images.

There are 5 formats to choose from: DD (decimal degrees, the default), DM (degrees and minutes), DMS (degrees, minutes and seconds), UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) , and MGRS (Military Grid Reference System) coordinates. These are case sensitive and must entered exactly as shown.

StampMgrsPrecision

MGRS precision. 1 is 10km, 2 is 1km, 3 is 100m, 4 is 10m, and 5 is 1m.

StampUseMilitaryTimeConvertedToUtc

When stamping images if both this and StampUseMilitaryTime are True, the timestamps from the camera will be converted to UTC time before they're stamped onto the images. This should be set to False if the camera's clock is already set to UTC time.

StampMgrsNoSpaces

If True no spaces will be included in the MGRS coordinates. Set to False if you want to include as space between the various components, i.e. grid zone designator <space> 100,000 meter square identifier <space> easting value <space> northing value.

StampUtmDecimalPlaces

The number of truncated decimal places in a UTM coordinate's easting and northing values.

StampUtmLatitudeBandDesignatorType

Specify the format of the latitude band designator to use when stamping images. The latitude band designator is the letter that appears after the UTM zone number.

There are 3 formats to choose from: MGRS (Military Grid Reference System) which uses A-Z except except I and O, HEMISPHERE which uses either N or S depending on the latitude, and NONE which omits the designator entirely. The default is MGRS.

StampUtmUnitsIsFeet

If this is True and if StampLatLonFormat is set the UTM, the UTM northing and easting values will be expressed in feet instead of meters. The type of feet is per the StampUtmFeetIsUsaFeet setting. The default is False (they're expressed in meters).

StampUtmFeetIsUsaFeet

If both this and StampUtmUnitsIsFeet are True, U.S. Survey feet (1 meter = 3.28083333333333) are used instead of International feet (1 meter = 3.28083989501312 feet) when converting from meters.

StampFontFace

Specify the footer font face for stamped images. The font should be a TrueType and must be installed on your system. The default is Arial.

StampFontSize

Specify the footer font size. If you enter 0 (the default), the program will automatically determine the optimal size so that the width is as wide as possible without exceeding the image width, but never being taller than what's specified by StampFontSizePercentage of the overall image height.

StampFontSizePercentage

When StampFontSize is 0, the program will automatically calculate the font size so that it's as wide as possible without being more than this percentage taller than the image's total height. The default is 3.25.

StampFontBold

When True, a bold font will be used for the footer. Note that making a font bold also makes it wider.

StampFontColor

Specify the footer's 24-bit long font color. This ranges from 0 (black) to 16777216 (white). The default value (12632256 = gray) corresponds to RGB(128, 128, 128). Red is 255. Green is 65280, yellow is 65535, blue is 16711680, etc.

StampFontOpacity

Specify the footer font opacity. This should be a whole number between 0 (invisible) and 255 (totally solid).

StampBackgroundBrightness

This controls the brightness of the footer text background and it should range between -100 (solid black) and 100 (solid white). Numbers in between those, like 0, result in a partially transparent background.

StampIncreaseCanvasHeight

When stamping location data in the image footer, the default method is to place it directly on top of the image. This causes a small amount of the image to be obscured by the text. If you set this option to True, the image's canvas height will be increased by the required amount so that the text can be stamped into the newly exposed area. This results in none of the raster data being obscured by the text.

StampIncreaseCanvasColor

If StampIncreaseCanvasHeight is True, the color of the newly exposed canvas will be set to this. This will become, in effect, the background color for the stamped footer text. 0 (black) is the default.

StampOmitDate

If True, the image date is not included in the footer when stamping. Use this if the date isn't important or if you're running out of horizontal space on the image.

StampOmitUtcOffset

If True, the UTC offset is not included in the footer as part of the timestamp when stamping.

StampOmitTime

If True, the timestamp that's used when stamping is per your computer system's Short Date format instead of the Long Date format, i.e. no time component will be included on the image, only the date. The UTC Offset will also also omitted.

StampOmitAltitude

If True, the altitude is not included in the footer when stamping.

StampOmitDirection

If True and if it exists for the image, the direction is not included in the footer when stamping.

StampOmitDatum

If True, the map datum is not included in the footer when stamping.

StampUseConfiguredDatum

If True, the value that you've specified for the Datum setting will be used when stamping images. If False the Datum setting will be ignored and whatever currently exists in the EXIF's datum field will be used. The default value is False.

StampUseCardinalDirections

When True and when stamping images, cardinal directions (N, NNE, NE, ENE, etc.) are used in the footer instead of decimal degrees measured clockwise from true north.

StampMinutesDecimalPlaces

When stamping images with degrees-minutes format (DM), this many decimal places will be used for the minutes.

StampElapsedTime

When True and when stamping images, the elapsed time relative to the earliest image will be stamped on the image footer instead of the image's local timestamp.

StampElapsedTimeWord

When StampElapsedTime is True and when stamping images, this word is placed after the elapsed time. The default word is "Elapsed".

StampUseDateAndTot

If True and when stamping images, the date and time will be stamped in a format similar to 'Date: 23SEP08 TOT: 1615Z' instead of using the long date format associated with your computer's regional settings. It's assumed that the camera's clock is set to the local time, so the time is converted to UTC time before stamping.

StampUseMilitaryTime

If True and when stamping images, the date and time will be stamped in a format similar to '0335:49Z 06JAN2011' instead of using the long date format associated with your computer's regional settings. It's assumed that the camera's clock is already set to UTC time, so the time is used verbatim and not converted before stamping. If you want to override this and also convert to UTC time, set StampUseMilitaryTimeConvertedToUtc to True

StampUseDateAndTotTimeDesignator

If StampUseDateAndTot is True when stamping images, this is appended to the end of the timestamp. The default is Z.

StampUseMilitaryTimeDesignator

If StampUseMilitaryTime is True when stamping images, this value, if any, is appended to the end of the time portion of the timestamp, but before the date. If this value is Z, the resulting timestamp would look similar to 0809:19Z 18JAN2011.

StampPrefix

If specified when stamping images, this text will be included to the left of the stamped footer text. If StampPrefixPrompt is also True, this text will be used for the associated prompt's default value.

StampPrefixPrompt

If True when stamping images, you'll be prompted for text to include at the beginning of the footer text. If StampPrefixPromptText is also specified, it'll be used for the prompt text. If StampPrefix is also specified, it'll be used for the default value.

StampPrefixPromptText

When stamping images and if StampPrefixPrompt is True, this is the text that will be presented to the user when prompting for the text to stamp to the left of the footer text.

StampSuffix

If specified when stamping images, this text will be included to the right of the stamped footer text. If StampSuffixPrompt is also True, this text will be used for the associated prompt's default value.

StampSuffixPrompt

If True when stamping images, you'll be prompted for text to include at the end of the footer text. If StampSuffixPromptText is also specified, it'll be used for the prompt text. If StampSuffix is also specified, it'll be used for the default value.

StampSuffixPromptText

When stamping images and if StampSuffixPrompt is True, this is the text that will be presented to the user when prompting for the text to stamp to the left of the footer text.

StampLeftRightJustified

If True when stamping images, the footer text, except for the timestamp, will be left justified. The timestamp will be right justified. The text in the middle, if it exists, will be centered between the two.

StampLeftRightJustifiedTitleInMiddle

If both this and StampLeftRightJustified are True when stamping images, the image title, if it exists, will be centered between the left and right justified components.

StampPreprocessorApplicationPath

Before an image is stamped and if specified, this application will be launched with the current image path passed as a command line parameter to it. Whether RoboGEO waits for the application to terminate before continuing depends on the StampPreprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd setting.

If the program can't find the file at the indicated path, RoboGEO will first look for it in the folder where robogeo.exe resides, then in the Windows user's Documents folder, and then finally in the RoboGEO folder that exists under the Windows user's Documents folder.

StampPreprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd

If True and if StampPreprocessorApplicationPath is specified, RoboGEO will wait for the launched application to terminate before continuing. Otherwise, the program is launched asynchronously.

StampPreprocessorApplicationTimeOut

If StampPreprocessorApplicationPath is specified and if StampPreprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd is True, this is the maximum amount of time (in seconds) RoboGEO will wait on the launched program to terminate. If -1, the wait will be indefinite.

StampPostprocessorApplicationPath

After an image is stamped and if specified, this application will be launched with the current image path passed as a command line parameter to it. Whether RoboGEO waits for the application to terminate before continuing depends on the StampPostprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd setting.

If the program can't find the file at the indicated path, RoboGEO will first look for it in the folder where robogeo.exe resides, then in the Windows user's Documents folder, and then finally in the RoboGEO folder that exists under the Windows user's Documents folder.

StampPostprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd

If True and if StampPostprocessorApplicationPath is specified, RoboGEO will wait for the launched application to terminate before continuing. Otherwise, the program is launched asynchronously.

StampPostprocessorApplicationTimeOut

If StampPostprocessorApplicationPath is specified and if StampPostprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd is True, this is the maximum amount of time (in seconds) RoboGEO will wait on the launched program to terminate. If -1, the wait will be indefinite.

StampLogo

If this is True when stamping images, the logo specified by StampLogoFilePath will be stamped onto each image.

StampIptcEditorPrompt

If True when stamping images, you'll be prompted whether to load the IPTC editor so you can specify IPTC data before stamping begins.

StampLogoFilePath

If StampLogo is True when stamping images, this logo will be stamped onto each image. If blank (the default), the program will look for and use Logo.png if it exists in the same folder as robogeo.exe.

If the program can't find the file at the indicated path, RoboGEO will first look for it in the folder where robogeo.exe resides, then in the Windows user's Documents folder, and then finally in the RoboGEO folder that exists under the Windows user's Documents folder.

StampLogoSizePercent

When stamping images and if StampLogo is True, the logo specified by StampLogoFilePath will be resized so that it's this percentage of the image's width or height, whichever is greater. If 0, the logo will not be resized.

StampLogoX

When a logo is stamped onto an image, the left side of the logo will be located this many pixels from the left hand side of the image. If the value you specify causes any part of the logo to fall outside of the image's area, the logo will be cropped. The dafault value is 0 for both this and StampLogoY - that will position the logo in the image's upper left corner.

StampLogoY

When a logo is stamped onto an image, the top of the logo will be located this many pixels from the top of the image. If the value you specify causes any part of the logo to fall outside of the image's area, the logo will be cropped. The dafault value is 0 for both this and StampLogoX - that will position the logo in the image's upper left corner.

StampLogoOpacity

When a logo is stamped onto an image, this is used for the logo's opacity. This can range from 1 (fully transparent or invisible) to 255 (fully opaque or solid). The default is 255.

StampLogoFeather

When a logo is stamped onto an image, this is used for the logo's feathering. Feathering allows the merged logo to appear as if it blends into the image instead of there being a sharp edge around it. It's expressed in pixels and is the width of the feathering. It can range from 0 to 250. The default is 0 (no feathering).

StampIptcLocation

When stamping an image, if this is True and if IPTC location data (city, state/province, and/or country) exists in the image, the IPTC data will be extracted and stamped onto the image above where the lat/lon location data is stamped.

StampIptcLocationWord

When stamping an image and if StampIptcLocation is True, this is used as the label for the location stamp. The default is 'Location'. If, for example, you specified 'Photo Location' for this option, the resulting image stamp may look something like 'Photo Location: Sunrise, FL USA'.

StampIptcLocationIncludeCountry

If this and StampIptcLocation are both True, the country will be included in the IPTC location stamp.

StampIptcLocationUseCountryAbbreviation

If this, StampIptcLocation, and StampIptcLocationIncludeCountry are all True, the country abbreviation will be included in the IPTC location stamp.

StampIptcLocationIncludeState

If this, StampIptcLocation, and StampIptcLocationIncludeState are all True, the state abbreviation will be included in the IPTC location stamp.

StampIptcLocationUseStateAbbreviation

If this, StampIptcLocation, and StampIptcLocationIncludeState are all True, the state abbreviation will be included in the IPTC location stamp. If the abbreviation cannot be automatically determined, the full state name will be included. Currently, only state/province abbreviations for the USA, Canada, and Australia are supported.

StampIptcLocationIncludeCity

If this and StampIptcLocation are both True, the city will be included in the IPTC location stamp.

StampIptcSubLocation

When stamping an image and if StampIptcSubLocation is True, this is used as the label for the sub-location stamp.

StampIptcSubLocationWord

When stamping an image and if StampIptcSubLocation is True, this is used as the label for the sub-location stamp. The default value is 'Object'. If you specified, for example, 'Neighborhood' for this option, the resulting string would look similar to 'Neighborhood: Whispy Pines Subdivision'.

StampNorthArrowPrompt

If True when stamping images, you'll be prompted whether to load an interactive form that allows you to specify north arrows to stamp onto each image.

If an image already has directional information associated with it, the north arrow direction will be automatically calculated.

On the interactive form you can specify the direction that the north arrow points by either clicking on the graphic or by typing in a value. When clicking on the graphic, the arrow will automatically orient itself so that it points to where you clicked, e.g. clicking at the 3 o'clock position will cause the north arrow to point to the right. You can reset an image's north arrow direction by clicking on the north arrow icon.

If you want to think in terms of the photo directions instead of the north arrow directions, select the 'Spec per photo direction' option and then enter in the photo directions. Doing that will cause the program to automatically determine the north arrow direction from the photo direction that you enter.

When you're done with the interactive form, the north arrows will be stamped onto each image along with the other information.

StampNorthArrowPath

If StampNorthArrowPrompt is True and if you select Yes to the resulting prompt, the graphic specified by this path will be used for the north arrow. If blank (the default), the program will use the supplied NorthArrow.png graphic located in the same folder as robogeo.exe.

Before stamping, this image will be dynamically resized per the percentage specified by StampNorthArrowPercentSize.

This graphic must a supported format and be sized to 640x640 pixels. The program dynamically stamps a white N in the center of it, so it must be the appropriate color too.

If the program can't find the file at the indicated path, RoboGEO will first look for it in the folder where robogeo.exe resides, then in the Windows user's Documents folder, and then finally in the RoboGEO folder that exists under the Windows user's Documents folder.

StampNorthArrowPercentSize

If StampNorthArrowPrompt is True and if you select Yes to the resulting prompt, the graphic specified by StampNorthArrowPath will be resized so it's this percentage of the image's width or height, whichever is greater.

The default value is 8, so if you're using that and if your image is 2000 x 1000 pixels, the north arrow graphic would be resized to 160 x 160 (8% of the greater dimension, 2000, is 160).

StampNorthArrowLeft

When stamping a north arrow onto an image, it will be positioned this many pixels from the image's left hand side. If this value exceeds the image's width, it'll be automatically adjusted so that the north arrow's right side aligns with the image's right side.

StampNorthArrowTop

When stamping a north arrow onto an image, it will be positioned this many pixels from the image's top. If this value exceeds the image's height, it'll be automatically adjusted so that the north arrow's bottom aligns with the image's bottom.

If you want the north arrow to be in the upper left corner, specify 0 for both StampNorthArrowTop and StampNorthArrowLeft. For the upper right corner, specify 0 for StampNorthArrowTop and any number larger than the image's width (like 9999) for StampNorthArrowLeft.

StampNorthArrowOpacity

Specify the north arrow graphic's opacity. This should be a whole number between 0 (invisible) and 255 (totally solid).

StampNorthArrowFeather

When a north arrow is stamped onto an image, this is used for the feathering. Feathering allows the merged north arrow to appear as if it blends into the image instead of there being a sharp edge around it. It's expressed in pixels and is the width of the feathering. It can range from 0 to 250. The default is 0 (no feathering).

ExifWriteSoftwareField

If False, the program will not update the EXIF Software field whenever it updates the EXIF data.

ExifWriteGpsTimeAndDateFields

If False, the program will not update the EXIF GPS Date and GPS Time fields whenever it updates the EXIF data. The default is True which will update these two fields whenever the GPS data is changed.

ExifCopyrightNotice

When this is specified and when other data is written to the EXIF headers, this is written to the photographer copyright notice EXIF field.

If (c) or (year) exists, they are replaced with © and the year of the EXIF timestamp, respectively. So, for example, Copyright (c) (year) Nort McGurski would become Copyright © 2017 Nort McGurski. Note that (c) and (year) are case sensitive.

ExifCopyrightNoticeOverwriteExisting

If False (the default value), existing photographer copyright notices are never overwritten.

ExifArtistCameraOwner

If specified and when writing other data to the EXIF headers, this value is used to construct the EXIF Artist field. Normally, you should also specify the ExifArtistPhotographer and ExifArtistImageCreator fields in conjunction with this.

The final form of the Artist field will be similar to "Camera owner, John Smith; Photographer, Michael Brown; Image creator, Ken James", with this option shown in bold.

ExifArtistPhotographer

If specified and when writing other data to the EXIF headers, this value is used to construct the EXIF Artist field. Normally, you should also specify the ExifArtistCameraOwner and ExifArtistImageCreator fields in conjunction with this.

The final form of the Artist field will be similar to "Camera owner, John Smith; Photographer, Michael Brown; Image creator, Ken James", with this option shown in bold.

ExifArtistImageCreator

If specified and when writing other data to the EXIF headers, this value is used to construct the EXIF Artist field. Normally, you should also specify the ExifArtistCameraOwner and ExifArtistPhotographer fields in conjunction with this.

The final form of the Artist field will be similar to "Camera owner, John Smith; Photographer, Michael Brown; Image creator, Ken James", with this option shown in bold.

MagneticDeclination

For your location, this is the difference between magnetic and true north. East values should be positive, west negative.

This number is added to the photo directions that you enter. You should only specify this number if your photo directions were obtained using a magnetic compass. You can determine the magnetic declination for a given location from here.

UseDiskDateAsTimeStamp

If True, the program will use the image disk date as the timestamp instead of trying to determine it from the EXIF headers. This is useful for webcams or older cameras that don't produce EXIF compliant images.

ExifMaxGpsCompatibility

If True, the program writes latitude and longitude values to the EXIF with a precision of 2 decimal places on the minutes. This results in a maximum error of 0.005 minutes, but it ensures compatibility with almost all 3rd party EXIF reader programs. If False (the default), the latitude and longitude values are written to the EXIF with exact precision.

Normally, you should only set this to True if your EXIF reader program can't read the high precision values that the program writes.

ForceFileNameAsImageTitle

If True and if ForceFileNameWithoutExtensionAsImageTitle is False, when an image is loaded the EXIF image title is set to the image's file name and is used for any subsequent processing. You may want to do this if your camera automatically sets the title to the make/model of the camera or if it sets it to an arbitrary string. The default is False.

ForceFileNameWithoutExtensionAsImageTitle

If True, when an image is loaded the EXIF image title is set to the image's file name without the extension and is used for any subsequent processing. You may want to do this if you use the EXIF titles for descriptive purposes. The default is False.

ForceTextAsImageTitle

If not empty, when an image is loaded the EXIF image title is set to what you specify here and is used for any subsequent processing. You may want to do this if your camera automatically sets the title to the make/model of the camera or if it sets it to an arbitrary string. The default is blank.

WriteImageTitleToExifTitle

If this is True when writing data to the EXIF, the image title, if it exists, will be written to the EXIF title field.

WriteImageTitleToIptcHeadline

If this is True when writing data to the EXIF, the image title, if it exists, will be written to the IPTC headline field.

WriteImageDescriptionToExifDescription

If this is True when writing data to the EXIF, the image description, if it exists, will be written to the EXIF description field.

WriteImageDescriptionToIptcCaptionAbstract

If this is True when writing data to the EXIF, the image description, if it exists, will be written to the IPTC caption/abstract field.

UseExifGpsDestLocations

If True, an image's latitude and longitude data will be read from and written to the EXIF's GPS destination fields instead of the normal EXIF location fields. This adds compatibility for some GPS cameras like the ikeGPS.

UseExifGpsBearingDirections

If True, an image's direction will be read from and written to the EXIF's GPS bearing direction field instead of the normal EXIF direction field. This adds compatibility for some GPS cameras like the ikeGPS.

ApplyRelativeDirectionsToTracklogHeading

If True, when applying relative directions to images that have existing directional information and when a tracklog is loaded, the relative direction will be applied to the computed tracklog heading instead of it being applied to image's existing directional information. Normally, this should be False so that the image's directional information takes precedence over what may be computed from a tracklog. Note that you can accomplish the same thing by selecting the 'Edit Direction' option under the 'Edit' pull-down menu instead of using this setting and typing directly into the grid.

PromptToEditTimestampsAfterGeocoding

If this option is True after geocoding images without error, you'll be prompted whether to update each image's EXIF timestamp to account for the current CameraOffset and/or UtcTimeBias value. Once applied to the image timestamps and if you chose to do so, CameraOffset will be reset to 0 and UtcTimeBias will be reset to the new value you selected. These changes are always applied to your original images, regardless of the EditOriginalImages setting. You can also perfrom this operation via the 'Edit' pull-down menu.

WarnIfExifDateIsJanFirst

After loading images, you'll be warned if any image has an EXIF date of January 1st.

WarnIfExifDateIsOneYearPast

After loading images, you'll be warned if any image has an EXIF date that's more than 1 year old.

ExifPreprocessorApplicationPath

Before data is written to the EXIF and if specified, this application will be launched with the current image path passed as a command line parameter to it. Whether RoboGEO waits for the application to terminate before continuing depends on the ExifPreprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd setting.

If the program can't find the file at the indicated path, RoboGEO will first look for it in the folder where robogeo.exe resides, then in the Windows user's Documents folder, and then finally in the RoboGEO folder that exists under the Windows user's Documents folder.

ExifPreprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd

If True and if ExifPreprocessorApplicationPath is specified, RoboGEO will wait for the launched application to terminate before continuing. Otherwise, the program is launched asynchronously.

ExifPreprocessorApplicationTimeOut

If ExifPreprocessorApplicationPath is specified and if ExifPreprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd is True, this is the maximum amount of time (in seconds) RoboGEO will wait on the launched program to terminate. If -1, the wait will be indefinite.

ExifPostprocessorApplicationPath

After data is written to the EXIF and if specified, this application will be launched with the current image path passed as a command line parameter to it. Whether RoboGEO waits for the application to terminate before continuing depends on the ExifPostprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd setting.

If the program can't find the file at the indicated path, RoboGEO will first look for it in the folder where robogeo.exe resides, then in the Windows user's Documents folder, and then finally in the RoboGEO folder that exists under the Windows user's Documents folder.

ExifPostprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd

If True and if ExifPostprocessorApplicationPath is specified, RoboGEO will wait for the launched application to terminate before continuing. Otherwise, the program is launched asynchronously.

ExifPostprocessorApplicationTimeOut

If ExifPostprocessorApplicationPath is specified and if ExifPostprocessorApplicationWaitForEnd is True, this is the maximum amount of time (in seconds) RoboGEO will wait on the launched program to terminate. If -1, the wait will be indefinite.

TitleMakerCaption1

This phrase will be used for the caption of the 1st input field on the Title Maker form.

TitleMakerCaption2

This phrase will be used for the caption of the 2nd input field on the Title Maker form.

TitleMakerCaption3

This phrase will be used for the caption of the 3rd input field on the Title Maker form.

TitleMakerDelimiter

If more than one of the title parts are specified on the Title Maker form, this value will be inserted between the part(s).

TitleMakerThumbnailWidth

This is the width, in pixels of the thumbnail preview on the Title Maker form.

TitleMakerThumbnailHeight

This is the height, in pixels of the thumbnail preview on the Title Maker form.

AlwaysRenameOriginal

If True, the program always renames the original images regardless of the EditOriginalImages setting.

PromptForKmlPolygonFile

If True, you'll be prompted to load a KML polygon file when the applicable form loads. If False, you'll have to load the KML polygon file from the resulting form. You may want to do this if you simply want to type the renamed values directly into the grid without relying on the polygons.

AlwaysRedateOriginal

If True, the program always redates the original images regardless of the EditOriginalImages setting.

RotateWhenLoaded

If True and if orientation information exists in the EXIF headers, images will be automatically rotated when loaded and the EXIF Orientation field will be reset to 1. The process is entirely lossless.

RoboGEO does not support writing the raster data to RAW formats, so they will not be rotated when loaded.

NOTE: The rotation is always performed on the original images.

PromptBeforeRotating

If both this and RotateWhenLoaded are True, you'll be prompted whether to rotate images prior to loading them.

KeepImageDirAfterProjecting

The direction in which an image is projected is per the photo's direction. It's presumed that when you project a photo location that the new location represents the true location of the photo's subject, making the photo direction value obsolete.

If False (the default), the photo direction will be removed after projecting the image to the new location.

RemoveImageAltitudeAfterProjecting

If True, the image altitude will be removed after projecting the image. The default value is True.

When projecting a photo location in airplane mode, the altitude value associated with the image will also change depending on the GPS receiver's distance above the ground and the camera angle. Since the distance above the ground can vary with the terrain below or with the skill of the pilot, this can cause the resulting altitudes after projecting to be inaccurate.

LocateWorldMapUrl

If specified, this URL will be launched when the Edit-->Locate-->World Map menu option is chosen. If the URL contains the bracketed terms [lat] or [lon], the program will automatically insert the current image's true values for them. For example, your URL may look like http://www.yourmap.com/script.php?lat=[lat]&lon=[lon]. Leave this setting blank (the default) to use the default world map provider.

LatLonFinderUrlQueryString

If specified and if the selected image doesn't already have latitude and longitude values associated with it, this ampersand delimited string of name=value pairs is appended to the end of the URL (http://www.robogeo.com/latlonfinder/map.asp) associated with the 'Lookup Lat/Lon Values' option under the 'Edit' pull-down menu. This allows you to specify the default 'view' (normal, satellite, hybrid, physical), 'zoom' (1 to 15), 'lat' (-90 to 90), and/or 'lon' (-180 to 180). For example if you want the terrain view to be the default, specify (without the quotes) 'view=terrain'. If you want a hybrid view with a zoom value of 10, specify 'view=hybrid&zoom=10' (note the ampersand). Do not include a leading question mark.

LaunchImageFolder

If True, when you double click on a thumbnail, the image's folder will be loaded into Windows Explorer instead of the full-size image opening in the graphics program associated with the image's file extension. The default is False.

LaunchImageWithDifferentExtension

When you double click on a thumbnail and if this file extension is specified, the extension replaces the image's current extension and the resulting file path is opened in the program associated with that extension. The default is blank so that the full size image opens in your normal graphics program. Do not include a leading period.

For example, if you specify 'XMP' for this option and if you double click on an image with the name 'MyImage.JPG', the program will try to load 'MyImage.XMP' into the Windows program that's associated with the XMP file extension.

LaunchApplication

If this file path is specified, when you double click on a thumbnail image, this application will launch instead of the image being loaded into your normal graphics program. Do not enclose the path in quotes. The default is blank.

If the program can't find the file at the indicated path, RoboGEO will first look for it in the folder where robogeo.exe resides, then in the Windows user's Documents folder, and then finally in the RoboGEO folder that exists under the Windows user's Documents folder.

LaunchApplicationWithImageAsParameter

If True and if LaunchApplication is specified, when you double click on a thumbnail image, this application will load and the associated image's file path will be passed as a command line parameter to it. Do not enclose the path in quotes. The default is blank.

SkipPreviouslyGeocodedPhotos

When True and when geocoding images from a tracklog, previously geocoded images will be skipped. The default value is False.

You should set this to True, for example, if you use the GPS tracklog as a backup method for geocoding images in the event that a real-time hardware solution fails.

UseClosestTrackPoint

If True and if the program is unable to geocode an image normally from a tracklog, the closest trackpoint will be used for the photo location. The closest trackpoint is the one with a timestamp that is the closest to the image timestamp.

Images that were geocoded from the nearest trackpoint will show up as red (non-bold)in the resulting list.

Use this option with care because it can result in (very) inaccurate results or mask other problems.

CombineTracklogSegments

If True, all of the tracklog segments will be combined into one before being used for geocoding photos.

You should use this option if your tracklog contains many unintentional tracklog segments and if you're unable to geocode the images because the image timestamps fall between these segments.

PhotoDirFromTracklog

If True and if geocoding images from a tracklog, the image direction will be set to the current tracklog heading. Headings are measured clockwise from North.

For example, if you were traveling west when a photo was taken, the photo direction will be set to 270.

PhotoDirFromTracklogOffset

If PhotoDirFromTracklog is True and if geocoding images from a tracklog, this number is added to the tracklog heading to determine the photo direction.

For example, if you were traveling east when a photo was taken and if this is set 45, the photo direction will be set to 135.

This option should normally be used if all of your photo directions are at a constant angle relative to your direction of movement. For example, if all of the photos are taken out of the left hand window of a moving car, use 270 for this option. If taken out the right window, use 90. If taken straight ahead, use 0.

Note: When you manually enter a photo direction by typing directly into the main grid, you can use directions relative to the current tracklog heading by preceding the number with an @ symbol, i.e. setting PhotoDirFromTracklogOffset = 45 is the same as manually entering @45 for the photo direction. The benefit of manually entering directions is that each image can have a different relative direction, which is easy to determine if there is foreground data (like a cockpit or car window) in the image that gives a clue as to the relative direction. The benefit of using PhotoDirFromTracklogOffset is that it calculates all of the directions automatically when it geocodes the images, meaning that you don't have to manually enter the data.

MaxJtrTimeDifference

When geocoding photos from an imported JTR file, if the time difference between an image and the closest trackpoint exceeds this values, the image will be skipped and not geocoded. The number is expressed in seconds. If you specify -1, the time difference will be ignored.

MaxTracklogTimeDifference

When geocoding photos from a tracklog, if the time difference between an image and the closest trackpoint exceeds this value, the image will be skipped and not geocoded. The number is expressed in seconds. If you specify -1 (the default), the time difference will be ignored.

ImportCsvAsCapCsv

If True, imported CSV files will be treated as if they were generated from the 'Template Work Sheet' that's associated with the 'CAP Image Processor' instead of being treated as generic CSV files.

WaypointImageMaxTimeDifference

When geocoding photos from waypoints in an imported GPX file, the photos are matched to the waypoint having a timestamp that's closest to the photo's EXIF timestamp if the time difference is less than this number, specified in seconds. If you specify -1 (the default) the difference is ignored.

SetImageTitleToWaypointName

If this is True when geocoding images from waypoints and if the waypoint name is not blank, the waypoint name will be used for the image title. Image titles are written to the EXIF per these options.

SetImageTitleToWaypointComment

If this is True when geocoding images from waypoints and if the waypoint comment is not blank, the waypoint comment will be used for the image title. This setting is ignored if SetImageTitleToWaypointName is True.

SetImageDescriptionToWaypointName

If this is True when geocoding images from waypoints and if the waypoint name is not blank, the waypoint name will be used for the image description.

SetImageDescriptionToWaypointComment

If this is True when geocoding images from waypoints and if the waypoint comment is not blank, the waypoint comment will be used for the image description. This setting is ignored if SetImageDescriptionToWaypointName is True.

WaypointIdentifierMaxLength

Enter the maximum number of characters that your Garmin GPS supports for waypoint identifiers. When uploading waypoints, you'll be warned if any of the waypoint name lenghts exceed this number.

WaypointIdentifierSymbol

Enter the Garmin Protocol waypoint symbol number. Not all Garmin units support all symbol numbers. Set this value to -1 to force the Garmin unit to use its default waypoint symbol.

WaypointCommentMaxLength

Enter the maximum number of characters that your Garmin GPS supports for waypoint comments. When uploading waypoints, you'll be warned if any of the waypoint comment lenghts exceed this number.

WaypointCommentUseDate

When uploading waypoints, if this is True the program will automatically create waypoint comments based on the photo's EXIF timestamp. These timestamps are for human eyes only and cannot be used by any program that's fully compliant with the Garmin Protocol. Set this to False if you want to manually enter the comments or if you want to leave them blank.

PlaceLookupFormOnTop

If True, the 'Place Lookup' form will stay on top of all other windows.

PlaceLookupMaxResults

When looking up places, this is the maximum number of records that will be returned. The default is 100, but the actual number can be as high as 1000. Each record will be about 700 bytes so, depending on the speed of your internet connection, 1000 records may take a long time to download.

PlaceLookupSearchRadius

When you double click on a place lookup result, you can search for places near the current one. The number that you specify here (in km) is the radius of that search.

GeonamesUserName

Before using the reverse geocoder, you should register with geonames.org. When you do that, you'll be issued a user name that you can use for this option. If you use the default value (robogeo), you'll likely experience intermittent failures looking up data as the robogeo user name's account quota is exceeded. This value, if it exists, will be appended to the end of the query string of the associated URLs with the name 'username'.

GeonamesUrlSearch

Specify any URL that's compatible with and can accept the same parameters as the search service at geonames.org.

GeonamesUrlNearestAddress

Specify any URL that's compatible with and can accept the same parameters as the nearest address service at geonames.org.

GeonamesUrlAltitude

Specify any URL that's compatible with and can accept the same parameters as the SRTM service at geonames.org.

GeonamesUrlNearbyPlaces

Specify any URL that's compatible with and can accept the same parameters as the nearby place name service at geonames.org.

GpxImagePathInWaypointComment

If True, and if exporting the photo locations as a list of waypoints, the local image file path will be written to the comment field in the form file:<path>.

When False (the default), the image title, if it exists, is written to the waypoint comment field. You should set this to True if you're using the GPX files in a 3rd party application that can make use of the local path.

GpxImageTitleAsWaypointName

When exporting a GPX file and if this value is set to True, the image's EXIF title will be used for the waypoint name instead of the filename.

GpxMemoryMapCompatible

AudioImageMaxTimeDifference

Enter the maximum time (in seconds) that the image and audio times can differ.

The program associates images with audio by comparing an image's EXIF time to the audio file's disk date. For a given image, the associated audio file is the one with the disk date that's closest to the EXIF time. It doesn't matter if the audio time is before or after the image time.

AudioAllowUnsupportedFileTypes

If True, you'll be able to select and associate any type of file (not just audio files) with the images.

To execute the unsupported file types within the program, there must be a program currently associated with the given file extension.

Unless the unsupported file type has a disk date stamp that equates back to the photo (which it probably doesn't), you should also set AudioAutoAssociate to False to prevent the automatic association that occurs when they are loaded. In that case, you'll need to manually associate them.

When exporting to Google Earth, if this is True and if the photos have valid EXIF timestamps, a photo timeline will be included in the output. The default is False. Note that if a photo's timestamp does not fall within the range of the current Google Earth timeline, the photo will not have an icon on the map. You'll need to adjust the timeline range to see all of the photo icons. This may be confusing to others who view your KML files.

GeIncludeTracklogTimeLine

When exporting to Google Earth, if this is True and if there's a tracklog currently loaded, a tracklog timeline will be included in the output.

GeRenameKmzImagesUsingLowAscii
