Uploading Geo-Tagged Images

Published: 13 January 2011
Geograph is able to extract some meta-data from the image (.jpg) file uploaded, to save having to enter the coordinates again.

Original Submission Method

Submit v2

EXIF-Geo Lat/Lng - used to populate the photographer position, and set the subject gridsquare.

Filename - the filename is checked for a Grid-Reference and if found used for Subject (overrides the grid-square set from EXIF Geo)

if not found in filename, then the EXIF-Comment is checked for Subject position.


will attempt to extract the Subject position from the EXIF-Geo Lat/Lng data, the image filename, or the Exif-Comment sections (attempted in that order).

Picasa Upload Button

Due to technical limitations of the upload process, no automatic extraction takes place (not even the date)
