Continuing the GPS research. Having missed the opportunity to capture GPS data at the time of shooting, what can one do?
- It is easy enough to find most urban places by searching Google Maps. I found out that if you then right-click on the pin locator and select ‘what’s here’ the GPS coordinates conveniently pop up.
- They can then be pasted into Lightroom’s location data for the photograph and a second miracle of technology occurs – LR asks if you would like to ‘reverse fill location from GPS data’ – if you allow it to, it connects with Google Maps and returns the street name, city and country information.
So, I’m now in a position to acquire GPS data for non-GPS cameras in two ways (automated way here) and the next step will to be to research what of interest can be done with it!
