Software for GPS Tagging of Photographs.

I came across a great open source software for geotagging your photos. GeoSetter is a freeware tool for Windows for showing and changing geo data of image files (e.g. images taken by digital cameras).

Websites like Flickr or Panoramio not only allow you to upload your photos but also add an additional aspect to the social sharing of your photos by automatically tagging and dispaly them on world maps like Google Maps, Google Earth or Yahoo Maps.
