Where to get it

The source code can be downloaded at our Sourceforge project page here.

How to compile the source code

Geotag was developed using Eclipse 3.3. It is recommended that you use the same tool.

Here is how you set up a development environment for Geotag:

First you need the Java SE Development Kit (JDK). Geotag needs JDK 6. You can download it from the Sun Developer Network web site.

Once you have installed the JDK, download the Eclipse IDE for Java Developers from www.eclipse.org/downloads/ and install it on your computer.

Once Eclipse is installed, you can start it. Eclipse starts with a Welcome page. It leads you to lots of useful information, but to get the Geotag source code, close the Welcome page.

First you need to create a project for Geotag. There are two ways of doing this:

Method 1 - source code from CVS

This will give you access to the latest development snapshot. It is the best method, if you want to keep the source code in Eclipse up-to-date.

Method 2 - downloaded source code

This gives you the source code for a particular version. It is slightly easier to do, but not as easy to keep up-to-date.

Now that you have a Geotag project, you can try and run the program.

If everything went well, the Geotag application will start. Congratulations! You have compiled and run the application from source code.
