Lightroom 6.2: Map module doesn't handle HDPI correctly (Win 10)

I have Lightroom 6.2 on a Windows 10 machine with a 4k monitor, set to 150% scaling. Whenever I drag & drop a photo (or group) onto the map module, the item is placed below and to the right of where I dropped it. It _looks_ like the drop location is being scaled by about 150%, relative to the top-left of the map pane. Existing items appear to render in the correct location on the map, and mouse interaction with the map appears to work as expected, so this problem _seems_ to be limited to drag & drop.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom: Dragging a photo to the map places the photos in a different location....

Dragging one or more photos to the map and releasing used to set the photo's location to exactly where you dragged it to. In the last two versions, the pin/locations is not where you dragged them to, and can be thousands of feet to miles away. Reverting to version 6.1.1 solves the issue.

I'm using Windows 10, 6.2.1 and 6.2.0.

I've verified with David that he is also using a hi-dpi monitor set to 150% scaling. I will investigate.

Thanks,
Ben

I am able to reproduce this problem, and I've notified the engineers.

Thanks,

When I put photos on the catographes (Map) they do not appear and do not take the coordinates of where I deposit them but much lower. This problem is since the 6.2.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Adding location by dragging phot to map highly inaccurate.

Dragging a photo to a place in map module places photo in wrong location.
No longer possible to add location to a photo this way in Lightroom CC.

Note: This conversation was created from a reply on: Lightroom: Latitude/longitude search wildly inaccurate in Map module.

I can also say that I'm working on a high resolution monitor (eizo 4K), so this problem is indeed the same issue. Thanks to the moderator(s) for merging this!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Bug in photo placement on HiDPI device.

I have a Windows 10 machine (Surface Pro 3 i7) with a 2560 by 1440 external monitor with scaling set to 125%. I'm running the latest version of Lightroom CC (2015.2.1).

In the map module, whenever I drag & drop a photo (or group) onto the map, they get pinned below and to the right of where I drop them relative to the top-left corner of the map. If I then drag the pin (this only works for single photos) I can then place it correctly.

Any photos that have already been tagged seem to be shown in the right place.

The below image shows this problem, including two pictures A and B that I have placed and then Lightroom has recorded further east and south of their true locations. Item C is fine (in the top-left corner)

This issue should be corrected by the Lightroom CC 2015.3/6.3 which is available today.

This has not fixed it for me (markers still appear differently to where I drop them), and has caused a regression - the map now has a massive black bar at the top of it taking up around half the map area. Here's a screenshot:
