Default Military help! Geo Tagging

Please Login to Remove!

I am a Survival Instructor and work at the USAF SERE School as a private contractor. I have been tasked to start geo mapping the training area. I recently purchased a Blackberry Tour since it has the geo mapping/tagging available for the camera phone.

I now have about 30 pics of different points in our training area and am trying to figure out how to download them to Google Earth or some kind of TOPO map.

Anyone have any experience with geo mapping?

Moved to a more appropriate section.

I suggest a search and/or a read through of this section. Also Google. DoD has some standard packages they use, so you might try there also. Don't know if they are for the BB however. And it depends on the quality and accuracy you need on the coordinates.
