Abstract: -Keeping in consideration the high demand for mobile applications, this paper focuses on understanding and implementing location based services for aiding in day-to-day tasks. We have tried to design an image geotagging application for Android devices running version 2.2 or higher. Also a comparison is drawn based on accuracy of geo-spatial information between the native camera geotagging integrated with android phones and that of our application. The minimum time and minimum distance parameters for location updates are used in deciding optimum capturing points.
