Geo tagging is the process of adding geographic identification metadata to various media such as a photo, a video, websites, SMS messages, QR Codes or RSS feeds. These data usually consist of latitude and longitude coordinates, although they may also include altitude, direction, distance, precision data, and place names.
Geotagging can help users find a wide variety of information specific to a specific location. For example, you can find images taken near a particular location by entering latitude and longitude coordinates into an appropriate image search engine. Geo tagging-enabled services can also potentially be used to find news based on location or other features. Geotagging can inform users the location of the content of a particular image or other media.
For this article, we will focus on the use of geo tagging for photos and videos. There are two main options for doing the geo tag of photos: capturing GPS information at the time the photo is taken or attaching the photo to a map after the photo is taken. The information goes all the way to EXIF, something that we have already described in this article .
In order to capture GPS data at the time the picture is taken, the user must have an integrated GPS camera or a standalone GPS along with a digital camera. Due to the requirement for wireless service providers in the United States to provide more accurate 911 call location information by September 11, 2012, more and more mobile phones have built-in GPS chips. Most smartphones already use a GPS chip along with built-in cameras to allow users to automatically geo tag their photos. Others may have the GPS chip and the camera, but they do not have the internal software needed to embed the GPS information within the image. Some digital cameras also have built-in GPS in which they allow automatic geo tagging.
To find out if geo tagging is enabled or not, if you are using an iPhone, go to the “Settings” of the geo tagging program. Tap Settings, then General and then Location Services. See if applications that use GPS data are enabled.
On a Blackberry, go to the camera icon. Press the “Menu” button, select “Options” and see if the geo tagging option is enabled.
On an Android , launch the camera app. Open the menu on the left and go to “Settings”. See if “Geo tagging” or “local storage” (the name depends on the version of Android you have) are enabled
For your digital camera, read the user manual. Not all digital cameras come with geo tagging and the manual will explain if it exists and how to turn on GPS features.
