    Raster

    For getting at and manipulating the metadata of geotiff files there are listgeo, for listing an image's projection info, and geotifcp which allows you to add projection info to a tiff image. Get them both at ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/pub/geotiff/libgeotiff

    I could have sworn a couple of weeks ago a message went around saying some one had built a plugin for Photoshop which saved geotiff georeferencing info. However I can't find the message and google doesn't know about it. Do you? Google:photoshop+geotiff+plugin .
