TagsMap Module

Extracts GPS coordinates from a photo's EXIF data.


The EXIF_GPS module is a Gallery 3 module which will extract Latitude and Longitude information from a photos exif data. The data will be automatically extracted from photos as they're uploaded, if it's present. Additionally, a maintenance task is available to scan the entire Gallery 3 library for photos that were uploaded before this module is active, in order to extract GPS data from older pictures. This module also allows users to manually assign Latitude and Longitude values by using the edit menu option (Edit photo, Edit album, etc). The stored coordinates are then used to display a small google map in the sidebar, showing where the photo was taken. Also, for anyone using my TagsMap module, the sidebar is TagsMap aware -- in the event that the current item does not have exif coordinates associated with it, but does have a gps-tagged tag assigned to it, the coordinates from the tag will be used instead.
