Jeffrey Friedl has done a bunch of great plugins/piglets for Lightroom. This plugin â€“ for Lightroom 2.0 and later â€“ allows you to geoencode your photos from within Lightroom. This means you can put your GPS data right into your META information of your photos.
If you don’t have a GPS unit or a tracklog, you can specify locations by pinpointing them in Yahoo! Maps or Google Maps, then cut-n-pasting the url. You can also specify a GeoHash, or a latitude/longitude pair in one of a variety of formats, such as:
35.011065, 135.782201 35Â° 0' 39.83" N, 135Â° 46' 55.92" E 35 0 40, 135 46 56

Introduction and Instructions for the plugin can be found here.
Have been using several of his plugins for ages, including this one – they’re really good! Thoroughly recommended.
I think Jeffrey’s plugin’s are fabulous, I use nearly all of them but hadn’t found this one before. Thanks for the heads up.
I use this plugin. works great. I get a gpx from my cheap datalogger http://bit.ly/rDriu and select the photos I want to geotag. thats about all you need to do.
