I've migrated all my photos from iPhoto to Adobe Lightroom Cloud.
I'm happy with the final result.

There is on functionality I had with iPhoto, it's the feature to browse my photos by location, drill-down navigation from a map.

I've seen that we can set up GPS location for every photos, but I haven't find the way to browse them or find them by using the Location as a search criteria.

Is it possible ?
Is it in the roadmap ?

Many thanks for your next tip & hints about this

Provided you are using the current version of Lightroom Desktop, you should be able to simply click in the search bar....you will be presented with a list of individual search "facets", one of which is "Location". Click on that and you should see a list of all the locations that are contained in the metadata of the search source. Click on one of the locations to see all images containing that location name.

If the images contain GPS coordinates in the metadata, Lightroom should automatically fill in some of the location fields, and those fields are searchable using the location option.
