Bug#640798: O: gpscorrelate -- correlates digital photos with GPS data filling EXIF fields (command line)


since I'm using this I wonder whether you did a) stop doing the GPS
correlation thing alltogether or b) found a better alternative. If b),
would you be so kind and telling me what alternative there would be? :)
