    I off to India in a few months and have been using the Olympus OI app to geotag images in the camera (EM5 and EP5).
    Everything worked fine and I have the geotags in the metadata of the jpegs.
    However I'm having no joy in displaying the geotagged images in Google maps or Google earth.
    Could some kind soul assist me with a step by step procedure to display the data and images in Google maps as I found on a recent trip to Japan I was unable to ascribe some images to a place name despite taking what I thought were extensive analogue notes with pen and paper.
    Thanks Allan

    Iirc, you need to generate a .kml file for maps or earth... I'm not at my desk right now, but reply if you can't find one and I'll see what I used before... It was probably a script or tool from Google Code.
