New Website, new GeoSetter Version?

After a long time I decided to rework this website completely – you now see the result. I did this not least because of new rules regarding private policy which take effect on 25. May 2018 in Europe (for your interest see here: General Data Protection Regulation). Unfortunately, I didn’t care about this website in the last years, so a simple update of the used CMS (WordPress) wasn’t possible now. That’s why I did it completely new.

Yes, and what are you just reading? A blog, the first on this website and my first blog ever. I intend to doing this from time to time in the future now, for example for commenting updates of GeoSetter, posting useful knowledge and maybe also posting non-GeoSetter related stuff, like my joy about a new camera, a recent vacation or whatever. I’m not sure if I will really do so, but let’s see…

It’s a new website, but missing is a new version of GeoSetter. I can tell you, that I’m working on a new version 4, but it’s still not finished. About one year ago I expected to be finished in fall – last year. Now I’m not sure if I will finish until the end of this summer. As I do the work on GeoSetter in my spare time, besides my regular job, my family and other activities, it’s difficult to estimate. But for those who like GeoSetter and maybe are waiting for something new: I’m on it 😉


  1. Dear Friedmann,
    This is very good news! I noticed continued activity on Mantis, it was clear you had not abandoned the project yet. Looking forward to your version 4, as GeoSetter *still* is a trusty favorite.

  2. Hello Friedemann,

    I am glad that GeoSetter is still in development.
    I remember that long time ago I used your Exifer for a while but I never sent you a postcard. So I still owe you one.

    Best wishes

  3. Looking forward to 4.0! Any news on possible planned features? It would be nice if you could add other location data sources such as Foursquare or Google Maps for place names suggestions along with geonames.

    1. Yes, I know, the location data service has to be reworked. But I will not do this in the next release, maybe in 4.1 then… I know about the problems and it has a high priority then…

  4. Thank you for all your hard work on Geosetter. It’s a really good program and I look forward to seeing what version 4 is going to look like.

  5. Than you Friedemann! The website looks good, but v.4 of Geosetter looks even better from what I’ve seen! When are you going to show this marvel to the world? I know you are a perfectionist, but in my book 99.9999% perfect is good enough. Please release it!

  6. Hi Friedemann,
    I took a closer look at the translation into Italian but, contrary to what I had thought, you used the old translation (that I assume made by Thomas Krueger) and not mine. In fact, all the menus are back to the ancient “italiota” (that is: almost Italian).
    (from Google Translate: Ich habe mir die Übersetzung ins Italienische genauer angeschaut, aber im Gegensatz zu dem, was ich dachte, hast du die alte Übersetzung (die ich von Thomas Krüger vermutete) und nicht meine verwendet. In der Tat sind alle Menüs zurück zu den alten “Italiota” (das heißt: fast Italienisch).

    1. I think you are doing the translation for version 4, don’t you? Because a lot of things are changing, it would not fit to this version 3.5, I think… But of course I can check it…

  7. thanks for working on v4. using GeoSetter for the last 6 years and weekly for the last three years, for geotagging photos to upload to Mapillary.
    Keep up the good work
