Map Module not showing photographs in correct GPS location. Thought it was my 7D Mark II GPS, Photos seem scattered all around map when they are taken at same location. but when I take a picture with Cell phone to compare it too displays in wrong location. could it be a issue in LR? or something wrong with devices? Im sure the exact spot can not be given due to military requirements. But again with locations scattered seems odd. anyone else have this issue?
Upload a couple sample photos to Dropbox or similar and post the sharing link here. We can test whether our LRs are correctly placing the photos on the map based on the GPS coordinates embedded in the photos. Most likely, what you're seeing is due to the GPS coordinates that were embedded in the photos by the camera, but we can verify that.
I will work to upload picture(s) but I did a compare. checking LR Classic for a photo the GPS coords display were: 40 11 58.223N 75 47 19.835W but when I view in Acdsee I see 40.11 58 224000N 75 47.836000W (the photo location is at HopewelL Lake in Birdsboro PA. Not sure about how the two software products interpet the GPS data. I tired using the Canon GPS utility but it truncates displayed data. Anyone recomend a good software to view data?
Note that the coordinates displayed by LR differ by 0.001 of 1 second of latitude/longitude from those displayed by Acdsee, which is approximately 3 cm. (It appears that one of the programs is incorrectly rounding.) This minor discrepancy wouldn’t account for the big differences you’re observing.
Hello, I went back and took New pictures. this time I used my Garmin GPSmap 62s Gps data. the location data while a smaller sample was more accurate. I will keep trying. I guess I had hoped that the GPS in the camera was a little more accurate. Hate the idea the camera has this feature. but is not that accurate.
