RapidoMapSome of you may recall me blogging about Magrathea over the summer, a nice little georeferencing tool for your desktop documents on Mac which used actual Lat/Long as opposed to image coordinates. Apparently over the summer the software was picked up by app4mac and has been renamed RapidoMap. It remains freeware and but other than a few interface changes and being able to switch between aerial and street backdrops, the software remains pretty much the same. It still offers Flickr uploads for your referenced photos and allows you to search your desktop files by location, which can actually be useful if you travel a lot and your looking for a picture taken at a certain location. All-in-all I still recommend that folks check out this handy little app on the mac.
