SVN commit 587073 by cgilles:

kipi-plugins from trunk : new plugin to synchronize pictures metadata with a GPS data file.

First beta version of GPSSync kipi-plugin is now available for testing.

To use it, you need a GPX xml file generated by your GPS device. The GPX file must be generated to render a wayspoints or trackpoints list.

If your GPS device do not support GPX, you can generate it using GPSBabel program like this :

# gpsbabel -w -i mapsource -f Driveback.mps -o gpx -F Driveback.gpx   

The plugin use the Exif time-stamp to correlate GPS data. Accuracy of 30s is used to diff camera and GPS time-stamp. Of course, the date of your GPS device and your camera must be set properly (:=))).
