Theoretically it must be possible to select multiple images in the filmstrip and drop them onto the map. Unfortunately this only works for single images, not for multiple ones.

Works fine for me running Lr 2015.6.1 on Windows 10.

After selecting the images in the filmstrip, make sure you're clicking on one of the thumbnail images itself, not the border around it, and then dragging up to the map.  If you click outside the image on the border, you'll deselect all the other images and only move the single image to the map.

If that doesn't do it, explaining the exact steps you're taking and what happens would be helpful.

Thanks for that, Tom, that was indeed my problem.
