See the ios app trevi. It has a nice timeline view, maps view and places view. Does windows have any app that can do something like that? Picasa only has a timeline view, it doesn't place all photos on a map and let you browse them.

There are tons of apps like this for mobile platforms, but none I know of for the desktop?

Basically I want a desktop app, that shows

  • A timeline view of photos
  • A Map view of photos
  • A Cities/Places view of photos
  • A People's view of photos

The objective is to make it quick and easy to browse your collection according to multiple methods.

    \$\begingroup\$ Here's a relevant question. I'm not a Picasa user myself, but searching around I found that you should be able to display your photos on a map. Is that what you're looking for? \$\endgroup\$ Commented Feb 26, 2014 at 11:21
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, that shows for the map view, but what about timeline/cities ...etc? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Well, again, I'm not a Picasa user but I assumed that the timeline view is already present in Picasa as you said Picasa only has a timeline view. Can you maybe reword your question such that it becomes clear what you want? \$\endgroup\$ Commented Feb 27, 2014 at 3:00
  • \$\begingroup\$ Ok I've updated the question to state it more clearly. \$\endgroup\$

Adobe Lightroom basically does this and more. The only thing would be a stretch to accomplish would be browse by city, but unless you really are moving around all the time, simply tagging images with a keyword on import is easy and should likely be done anyways.

I've provided a similar example in this related question: How can I create a map with GPS data from EXIF?
