Does anyone know if there is a way to insert a geo-referenced i-phone image into AutoCAD 2011?

If you were to consider third party software, our MapWorks Base module allows you to select multiple images with Exif data and places a block insert (of a camera) at the projected coordinate in the target system.  If the camera contained a compass the insert is rotated to reflect the direction the photo was taken.  Lastly a hyperlink is embedded so you're one click away from the picture.


If you want the actual photo placed we an add a toggle for that.
