Author of much Lightroom plugin goodness Jeffrey Friedl has launched a new plugin for Lightroom 2.0. It his Lightroom “GPS Proximity Search” Plugin. Taking the GPS coordinates from an image, it will detect other images taken in the immediate area. For it to work, you need to have GPS coordinates stored with the images. Jeffrey offers clues on how to geoencode your images in the plugin post, but it’s all based on workarounds, due to the lightweight handling of GPS in Lightroom. If GPS is your thing, pop over and check it out.
