    Map software for GPS

    My Sony a77 came with Map View software which shows on a map just where you took a picture, using the GPS coordinates in the exif file.

    However, Map View only works with Windows and I'm on a Mac.

    Anyone know of a mapping software that would read the gps data from a raw file and display the map - for a Mac?

    Lightroom has it built in to Beta 4. What raw processor are you using?

    Also built into places in Aperture and iPhoto

    Hello Bill, Preview.app should do this. In my german version it is under "Werkzeuge -> Information", so maybe tools -> information.

    If the image has GPS-Data, a GPS"Tab" is shown between Exif and Tiff. The position is show on a map of the earth, with the button "Search" the web browser is opened on google-maps with this location.

    You can use LR4 as organizer and still then edit in C1.
