Paper Abstract

Internet geo and mapping services like Google Maps, Google Earth and Microsoft Bing Maps have reinvented the use of geographical information and have reached an enormous popularity. Besides that, location technologies like GPS have become affordable and are now being integrated in many camera phones. GPS is also available for standalone cameras as add on products or integrated in cameras. These developments are the enabler for new products for the photo industry or they enhance existing products. New commercial opportunities have been identified in the areas of photo hardware, internet/software and photo finishing.
