The Hasselblad Global Image GPS Locator Unit is a unique and innovative accessory for all Hasselblad digital shooters. Anyone involved in nature, sport, mountaineering, site surveying, architecture and other disciplines will find this system of great value.
When using this GPS receiving unit, all images shot will be precisely archived with place and coordinates (including time and altitude). The information is stored in an image file to be used with Hasselblad's exclusive imaging software, Phocus. This system provides instant location on a map using the archived coordinates for identification.
Inasmuch as a direct link to Google Earth has been designed into the "GIL" system, you can easily determine where and when an image was shot. As future online search engines are developed and expanded, it will be possible to do more sophisticated mapping with the metadata retrieved by this unit.
