Location Metadata


#1

I did look through the help files, but found only general info. I wondered if you would do a walk through on how to add location metadata to photos taken with a DSLR. I typically take a photo or two with my iPhone for reference. I use ViewExif on my iPhone and it provides Latitude/Longitude in the format N: XXº XX’ XX" and Lat: W: XXº XX’ XX". I see a few options for location data nodes, but I am unclear as the purpose for each, e.g. a descriptive text entry vs. the specific latitude/longitude. If the latter how to format the data and the correct node to use. Thanks!

Adding location data isn’t something we offer yet. The plan is to make a very specific node (with a map and the ability to enter coordinates). So look for that in a future release.

I can’t wait to see this! I’d like the ability to enter not just coordinates, but type in a location and have the coordinates populated like Photos does. I just got back from vacation and had a number of photos that I had to geotag and ended up doing it in Photos, exporting them, and then re-importing them. (If you don’t export in Photos, the location data isn’t written to the EXIF information and if the Photos databases gets corrupted, you lose that info).
