Nokia N95 Aerial Photography from PictEarth USA E-mail
Written by Glenn Letham   
10 July 2007
As a follow up to our interesting blog post about the high-flying Nokia N95 strapped to a kite, I have the pleasure to share some information about a more sophisticated application that builds on this technology.

 

Jeff Johnson from PictEarth USA contacted me and shared details of what his company has been doing for some time now, "in a more professional manner". Jeff and crew have developed software to run on the NSeries Mobiles that uses the GPS (internal or external) to record the position of the photos and make photo-overlays. The program generates KML that can be downloaded from the phone and uploaded to Google Earth. According to Johnson,"we are very close to having the ability to post data directly from the phone to our servers using the GPRS/EDGE/3G networks via FTP."

PictEarth has complete details available online at http://pictearthusa.com and a complete archive or aerial photography can be found at http://flickr.com/photos/pictearth/sets/ - a 4000+ photo gallery from the N95.

Testing is being considered on other devices, however, since the support of Nseries devices via US carriers is quite limited the N75 will likely be the next device used as it is the only S60 device that works on At&Ts 3G networks here in the US.

Of interest, those of you heading to GeoWeb later this month in Vancouver, you'll be able to get the low-down directly from Jeff.

Thanks to Jeff Johnson of PictEarth USA for the comments. See http://pictearthusa.com for more.
