Dear All, Yesterday, again I had a follow up contact with the Lightroom CC (Cloudversion) Help team on the new "Location viewer" item. It seems that Adobe has chosen a bad working cheep solution for the "Location viewer" in Lightroom CC (Cloud) instead of the previous Google maps. This is not the high quality of Adobe for which I have bought Adobe Lightroom CC with a high monthly fee for Software and Cloud. Two examples are;
  • Alesund Norway Cruise Ship Pier (Google maps title) in Alesund Norway
  • Longyearbyen Harbor in Longyearbyen on Spitsbergen
Also this viewer seems not being working in combination with my iPad.  
Please assist. Thanks for your help and regards, Jan Koning Texel (NL)

Greetings Jan,

I am uncertain what you are asking for here. Are you saying there is an inaccuracy in the labeling on the map?

Currently map views are not supported on mobile devices? Is that what you are asking or are you saying that GPS coordinates from your iPad-captured photo do not show a map in Lightroom CC?

Dear Rikk, a more clear exempel is Ny-Alesund on Spitsbergen. This place is easely found in Google maps. However, the current Adobe OSM digital globe viewer is not able to show the correct location. Please assist.
Kind regards, Jan Koning

Sorry Rikk, first of all I found out that the latest location viewer (open streeft map) in Lightroom CC (cloud version) on my laptop is of a bad quality comparison with the earlier Google Maps. I do not have GPS on my Nikon D80, so I have to add the location manually. Searching the location in Google maps, this location is not correctly shown in OSM. Various location on Spitsbergen (Svalbard) are not found or shown not correctly. Please assist
The location viewer is also not shown on the iPad version. If this is currently not supported, It is OK. Please confirm.
Thanks for your help. Regards, Jan Koning
