Extracting geo data from photographs
Some kind person has taken a lot of pictures of various items of our street furniture, in an effort to try and help me. The images were taken on a modern iPhone but the EXIF data shows the geo-coordinates as latitude and longitude - in degrees, minutes and seconds.
Unfortunately the Coordinate Finder in PO does not accept degrees, minutes and seconds and asks for Eastings and Northings. (Pauses to scratch head).
I've found a work around - using software called BR EXIF extractor. If you point the software at the folder containing all the 'photos and then select the data you need extracted, it scans the EXIF data from the images and produces the results as a CSV file.
While this geo data still needs to be input manually into PO it does allow a copy and paste, and maybe will work well when a PO tool to enable upload of data in a Table becomes available.
This problem of Lat and Long Vs Eastings and Northings may already have been solved by somebody else but if so I was able to find the answer, so apologies if I am repeating what is already known.
