GeoSetter is a freeware tool for Windows (requires Internet Explorer 10 or higher) for showing and changing geo data and other metadata (IPTC/XMP/Exif) of image files (e.g. images taken by digital cameras). The embedded map of GeoSetter doesn’t work on Windows XP, please see my short explanation here.

The current version is 3.5, released on 10 May 2018 (some more Info here and a small comment regarding a new version 4).

  • Reads and writes the formats JPEG and TIFF as well as camera RAW formats DNG (Adobe), CRW, CR2 and THM (Canon), NEF and NRW (Nikon), MRW (Konica Minolta), PEF (Pentax), ORF (Olympus), ARW, SR2, SRF (Sony) and RAF (Fujifilm), RW2 and RAW (Panasonic), RWL (Leica)
  • Uses ExifTool by Phil Harvey for writing data
