I am looking for a camera or web camera, along with software or a process.
This is what I would like to do:
1. open a program
2. take a picture
3. have the picture taken placed directly into a specified folder

What hardware/software do you recommend?

    What you're describing is generally referred to as "tethered shooting" if the camera is attached to the computer, however there are many untethered, mobile solutions available today, using radio transmitters.  Some of these will send GPS data as well as the image.  Make a Google search for these terms: tethered photography and read on.

    From what I have read, there is software to do this but the camera has to be compatible with the software - seems to be higher end DSLR cameras that are used this way. There are also wireless kits to use. And I found information about free software - for canon cameras:
