History / Fixes

Date: September 14, 2005
Issue: Georeferencing images from an imported GPX file would fail if the computer's Regional Settings used dates that were not of the form MM/DD/YYYY.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: September 15, 2005
Issue: Georeferencing images will fail or give inaccurate results if Daylight Savings Time changes between the time a tracklog is created and the time RoboGEO is used to georeference the images. For example, DST ends in most parts of the USA this year on October 30, 2005. So, if your tracklog is created on October 29, 2005 and you use RoboGEO to georeference them on October 31, 2005, you'll need to apply the fix below.
Fix: Set the UtcTimeBias setting to a number of minutes that equals the difference between UTC time and the camera time at the time the photos were taken.
 
Date: September 19, 2005
Issue: If an image list contained images of varying pixel size and if those size differences were significant, stamping location data onto some of the images may fail.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: September 19, 2005
Issue: Georeferencing images from waypoints would fail if a waypoint had missing altitude information and if it was downloaded from an altitude-enabled GPS unit.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: September 21, 2005
Issue: Adding new images to an existing Google Maps web page would fail if the existing robogeo.xml file did not contain a valid <points></points> section.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: October 11, 2005
Issue: The program gives no notice when the import of a GPX file fails because the <trkpt> elements do not have child <time> elements.
Fix: Time stamps are no longer required in imported GPX files in order to export KML/KMZ files to Google Earth. Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: October 22, 2005
Issue: Minor issues not affecting functionality. Removed unused namespace references from the generated KML files, changed the photo route placemark name from 'Route' to 'Path', added a non-breaking space in 'Full Size' to avoid potential positioning issues in the Google Earth flyout window, updated the Google Earth processing status label, and changed the About box to show the current revision number.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: October 27, 2005
Issue: A recent update to the Google Earth application (GoogleEarth.exe) was causing elements of the image flyout window to be improperly formatted. A bug was also fixed that was causing the Scale/Resize checkbox on the Google Earth interface to be ignored if a maximum pixel dimension was specified. Included numbers in the list of allowable characters for the default KML/KMZ SaveAs file name.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: November 2, 2005
Issue: A bug was introduced in the last revision that was causing the program to ignore the maximum image scaling/resizing value when exporting a KML/KMZ file to Google Earth.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: December 7, 2005
Issue: The latest version of the Firefox web browser (version 1.5) does not properly render Google Map info windows. This can result in improper alignment of the thumbnail images and the description text breaking unexpectedly and/or flowing outside the bounds of the Google Map info window. This bug does not exist in earlier versions of Firefox or in other brands of web browsers like Internet Explorer.
Fix: This is worked around in v3.1. Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: December 24, 2005
Issue: To view an image in an external viewer, the program passes the image path as a command line parameter to the program associated with the given file type. If the associated program is a DLL file (like the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, shimgvw.dll) or otherwise cannot accept command line parameters, the loading will fail.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: December 24, 2005
Issue: When the Google Earth client saves KMZ files with embedded images to the 'My Places' folder, it does not preserve the archive's structure nor does it save the embedded images. This results in missing images in the Google Earth fly-out windows after a KMZ file is saved. These will appear as gray boxes.
Fix: This issue will be addressed as soon as it's resolved by Google. Until then, don't use the Google Earth client to save KMZ files that contain embedded images.
 
Date: February 18, 2006
Issue: A bug was introduced in v3.0 that was causing the latitude and longitude values to be truncated (instead of rounded) to 2 decimal places when written to the EXIF headers.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: February 18, 2006
Issue: The last release of RoboGEO on January 21, 2006 (v3.1) jumped the gun and implemented v2 of the Google Maps API, which wasn't officially released at the time. Google Maps web pages created with RoboGEO v3.1 may continue to function in the future, but there's no assurance of that until Google Maps v2 is officially released.
Fix: As of v4.0, the program implements the official release of the Google Maps v2 API.
 
Date: February 18, 2006
Issue: The MakerNote EXIF field was being garbled with some brands of Nikon cameras.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: March 9, 2006

Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: March 11, 2006
Issue: When using previously geocoded images with the demo version, image stamping would sometimes fail without any notification.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: March 20, 2006
Issue: The program calculated an incorrect viewport height when there was only one image which would cause AutoCAD to report the DXF file as invalid.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above or manually edit the DXF file with any ASCII editor and change the invalid line that AutoCAD reports from 0.0 to a size that equals twice the donut diameter. If you don't know the donut diameter, use 1.0.
 
Date: March 23, 2006
Issue: Minor update. Added the ability to include single line text for each clickable photo entity in an exported DXF file. Also changed the DXF file's insertion base point to the location of the 1st photo or to the location of the 1st trackpoint if no photos exist. Click here for more info.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: March 26, 2006
Issue: Updated the distribution archive to include the latest libraries that address various issues.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: April 16, 2006
Issue: There's a bug relating to the UTF-8 encoding when KML files are created on systems with languages that use multi-byte characters and when those characters are used in the photo titles or descriptions. Google Earth will fail with an error when it tries to load such a file.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: April 20, 2006
Issue: The loading of KML files will fail if ampersands (&) or less than symbols (<) exist in the photo titles.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: May 1, 2006
Issue: Manually geocoding an image with semi-colon delimited latitude/longitude/altitude values will fail if the decimal character in the delimited values differs from the decimal character per the computer's Regional Settings.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: May 10, 2006
Issue: The Google Maps map center is not calculated if there's no tracklog data or if there is but it's not included in the output. This bug will cause the web browser to report a JavaScript error with the generated map.htm file.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: May 18, 2006
Issue: If you export only a tracklog to Google Maps and if the trackpoints in it contain missing or invalid timestamps, the Google Map polylines are not created and the map center isn't calculated.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: May 18, 2006
Issue: If the "search" or "replace" attribute values in GoogleMapSearchReplace.xml or GoogleEarthSearchReplace.xml contain quotes, the search/replace operation will fail.
Fix: For the "search" attribute value, use a string that doesn't contain a quote symbol. For the "replace" attribute value, use an apostrophy if possible.
 
Date: May 18, 2006
Issue: Minor change. When stamping images and if altitude data exists, "MSL" is added after the altitude's value.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: May 18, 2006
Issue: Minor change. Some of the generated Google Maps JavaScript was non-functional, so it was removed.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: June 5, 2006

Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: July 16, 2006
Issue: When exporting a shapefile, missing attribute information is written to the DBF file as either -99999, 0, an empty string, or 12:00 PM (depending on the data type) instead of nothing being written.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: July 19, 2006
Issue: When setting the camera offset using the "picture of the GPS" method, if the program that's associated with the file type can't accept command line parameters (like Microsoft's Windows Picture and Fax Viewer), the loading of the image will fail.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: July 30, 2006
Issue: Exported GPX files that contained either waypoints or routes did not fully comply with the GPX specification, so they would fail when loaded in some 3rd party applications (like Garmin MapSource) that force full compliance.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: August 5, 2006
Issue: When loading images with existing EXIF descriptions, the descriptions are not displayed in the main grid until you select an export feature and cycle through the images.

Fix: Do not tilt the view when geocoding images using Google Earth.
 
Date: October 3, 2006
Issue: Canon Sidecar files (THM) are unneccesarily converted to JPG format when data is written to the EXIF or IPTC fields.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: October 12, 2006
Issue: When cycling through previously geocoded images using the Google Earth geocoder, the range would progressively increase.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: November 2, 2006
Issue: The program does not properly read the latitude and longitude attribute values in imported GPX files if the longitude is the 1st attribute.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: November 2, 2006
Issue: The FindExecutable API function in Windows 2000 and possible other versions of Windows has a bug that may prevent it from returning the correct path to Google Earth when loading the Google Earth geocoder. This will occur when the path to Google Earth contains a space (like "Program Files").
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above, then manually specify the path to Google Earth using the new GeGeocoderGePath preference setting.
 
Date: December 20, 2006
Issue: The Google Earth Geocoder did not function properly with Google Earth v4.0.2416 and higher.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: December 21, 2006
Issue: On some systems the program would not load. At startup and after the splash screen displays, the program would unexpectedly end. This was being caused by an improperly installed DLL file.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: January 17, 2007
Issue: When importing a NMEA sentence file, if a fix time in an RMC sentence includes a decimal component, the time will be inaccurate by up to a minute. This can cause photos to be geocoded to the wrong location. Most GPS units write fix times as whole numbers, so this won't be an issue for most users.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: January 17, 2007
Issue: Minor revision. Added the ExifMaxGpsCompatibility preference option. When True, latitude and longitude values are written to the EXIF with an accuracy of 2 decimal places on the minutes. This ensures compatibility with almost all 3rd party EXIF reader programs. When False (the default), latitude and longitude values are written to the EXIF with exact precision.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: January 26, 2007
Issue: If a trackpoint in an imported GPX file has an altitude that's equal to exactly zero and if that trackpoint is used for geocoding a photo, the calculated altitude will be incorrect.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: February 15, 2007
Issue: If UtcTimeBias is set to -1 (the default) and if you live in the USA and if you haven't upgraded your O/S and if you try to geocode photos between the time when DST used to change and when it changes now, the geocoding will fail. The U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2005, passed by the U.S. Congress July, 2005, extended Daylight Saving Time (DST) in the U.S. and this change will not be known by your O/S until you patch it.
Fix: Set the UtcTimeBias preference setting to the actual difference between local time and UTC time or update your Windows O/S.
 
Date: February 22, 2007
Issue: If you write altitude values that are below sea level to the EXIF, the EXIF altitude reference field isn't properly updated.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: February 27, 2007
Issue: UNC paths are not supported in imported project files.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.

Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: March 27, 2007
Issue: If you import a Jelbert Geotagger file that include directional deviation and/or variance values and if applying those values to the photos would cause the directions to be greater than 360 or less than 0, the program was not correcting the directions so that they would fall between 0 and 360.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: April 18, 2007
Issue: Minor revision. Added the ShapefileWriteFullPath preference option.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: May 7, 2007
Issue: If you're exporting a large number of images (several hundred) to Google Maps or if you're using a slow computer, the program may appear to hang when processing the images.
Fix: The program is not hung and is working as it should. Be patient. The Google Maps export screen is missing a status indicator.
 
Date: May 28, 2007
Issue: Minor revision. Added the GpxMemoryMapCompatible, GpxMemoryMapIcon, and GpxMemoryMapCategory preference options. When specified and when when exporting GPX files that contain photos, the resulting output is suitable for import into Memory-Map.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: May 29, 2007
Issue: Minor revision. Set the default value of GpxMemoryMapIcon to 'Dot'.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: May 29, 2007
Issue: Google Earth version 4.1.7087.5048 has a bug that causes the crosshair in the geocoder to unexpectedly resize the first time the network link is refreshed. This resizing causes the crosshair to take on an odd shape and to be improperly positioned over the map.
Fix: Download and install the latest version of Google Earth or use Google Earth v4.0 or earlier.
 
Date: June 8, 2007
Issue: Altitude values are not read from imported GPX files if the local computer uses "French (France)" regional settings.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: July 1, 2007
Issue: Minor revision. Added the GpxMemoryMapTrkCategory, GpxMemoryMapTrkName, and GpxMemoryMapTrkPrompt preference options. When specified and when when exporting GPX files that contain tracklogs, the resulting output is suitable for importing into Memory-Map.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: September 2, 2007
Issue: Minor revision. Added the MaxTracklogTimeDifference preference option.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.

Issue: In some cases the program was incorrectly reading longitude values from imported NMEA files.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: September 8, 2007
Issue: Minor revision. The program now recognizes files with a .nma extension as being NMEA.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: September 8, 2007
Issue: The last minor revision introduced a bug that would cause the import of NMEA files to fail if the computer's regional settings used anything other than a period for the decimal separator.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: September 14, 2007
Issue: A bug was introduced in the last minor revision that would cause western longitude values to be incorrectly extracted from imported NMEA files.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: September 15, 2007

Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: September 19, 2007
Issue: Minor revision. When removing all currently loaded images, the program now prompts you whether to also unload any associated tracklog data.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: September 20, 2007
Issue: Minor revision. Files with a .gps extension are now recognized as valid NMEA sentence files.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: September 26, 2007
Issue: When writing to Olympus ORF files, the existing EXIF data may be corrupted.

Issue: A recent URL change was causing Flickr uploads to fail.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: October 25, 2007
Issue: If you set SkipPreviouslyGeocodedPhotos to true and if you load a set of previously geocoded photos and then try to load a tracklog that would otherwise be unable to geocode the photos, the program will report that the geocoding failed and will change the color of the file paths to red.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: October 29, 2007
Issue: If the location of your "My Documents" folder is a drive's root folder (like D:\) and if you try to export photos to Google Earth, nothing will happen when you click the 'Create KML File' button.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: November 5, 2007
Issue: The GeGeocoderRange preference setting was being ignored by the Google Earth geocoder when images already had latitude and longitude information associated with them. So, if you cycled through the images, the Google Earth view would go all the way to the ground instead of stopping at the specified range.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: December 26, 2007
Issue: If an image's latitude or longitude is between -1 and +1, Flickr's flickr.photos.geo.setLocation method interprets those values as 0 if they don't include a leading zero. This will cause the location to be incorrect when viewed in Yahoo Maps.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.
 
Date: December 31, 2007
Issue: To work around an issue with how Google Maps handled text inside of info windows, you had to manually insert carriage returns in the image descriptions to control the line lenghts. If you didn't, the descriptions would not flow nicely around the thumbnail images. When Google resolved their issue, RoboGEO's work-around morphed into a bug. That has now been fixed, i.e. when entering image descriptions forget about having to enter carriage returns and just let the text flow within the input box. Only enter carriage returns if you want to create new paragraphs.
Fix: Download and install the latest version from the link above.

Fix: Wait on Google to fix it or use an earlier version of Google Earth (5.1 or earlier) or don't don't launch KMZ files from paths that contain spaces.
 
Date: October 19, 2010
