I have a small high wing airplane. I want to take aerial photographs and use them in DeLorme Xmap 8 software program. I have a GoPro camera 3, which I can mount to a wing strut and take pictures through the camera's wifi via an app on my iPad. I don't know if these pictures will be GPS referenced. In other words, will the pictures show up on the map where they are supposed to be?
None of the GoPro cameras can geotag photos. Because they don't have GPS built in, or any way of connecting to a separate device. The GoPro app does not support geotagging.
So your aerial photos will not be geotagged. But you can geotag them afterwards. ie use a GPS device to record a tracklog, then sync this with the timestamps of the photos. There is a variety of software to do this, one free option for Windows is GeoSetter. For recording the GPS track, you could use an app on the Ipad, assuming it has a good view of the sky, and can get a good GPS signal.
Note for syncing, it helps if the time is accurately set on the camera. You can use the GoPro app on the Ipad to set the time. Or take a photo of your GPS device, with it showing the time. Then you can calculate the offset from that.
