Lightroom 5 does this quite well.
You can use Nikon View NX which may have come with your camera or you can download it for free. Geosetter is another free toool for geotagging
Lightroom 4 and 5 has this capability. I do use this though I have not found a really good reason to use geo-tagging but it is easy to use and I might find some value in it for the future.
I think it depends on your photography style/interests. If you like say studio photograph then, it's of limited use. However for travel photography it's great - I've been across a lot of India and have many photos of things i've seen, that without the GPS logging, I'm not really that sure what/why etc. But with the GPS tags you know for sure what it was (eg a part of a town, temple etc) and you can look it up on the web / make a travel diary with it etc.
Also for the OP you didn't say Mac or PC I think on Mac Apple Aperture can handle this too??
Most folk know I'm an affectionado of Paint Shop Pro, so I'm not going to get into the argument of whether it's better or worse than other higher priced similar programs. But I can confirm both versions X5 and the latest version X6 handle geo-tagging.
thank you for your replys i have a pc ,i have view nx2 but it only shows the tags for the folder you are looking at .
Lightroom is the same - only showing the one folder. However you can create a "collection" - add as many photos as you want to a sort of virtual photo album and then view the entire collection in map view. Lightroom may be a bit of an overkill for what you want though.
i suppose i could do that with view nx2 by putting 1 pic from every trip in a folder then it would build a map up
