Mapping Geotagged Photos.
Taking geotagged photos with a mobile phone or tablet if really easy. But how do you get those photos on a map? This app will create a comma-separated values (CSV) table from your geotagged photos and provide some quick tips for getting them on a map. Just as in the Photo Metadata Viewer below, no photos are metadata are copies to any server. This app uses the same client-side exif srcipt developed by Jacob Seidelin.
Photo Metadata Viewer.
Most digital cameras save JPEG images with metadata. This tool shows the metadata associated with an image taken with a digital camera. Not to worry, the photo and its metadata are not uploaded to any server. A client-side script does all the work. The srcipt was developed by Jacob Seidelin is available on GitHub.
Using the Geolocation API.
The Geolocation API Specification is a W3C Recommendation that provides access to a device’s geolocation through scripting. The API provides two methods for accessing a device’s geolocation and can be used for data collection that includes positional information in the form of latitude and longitude. While easy enough to implement, the API can be a bit challenging without a solid understanding of how it works. This article explains some of the less discussed aspects of using the Geolocation API in an effort toward a better implementation.
