Embedding GPS in photo into note, sans app

Recommended Posts

Someone mentioned on the Forums that there was an extraction of GPS info in a photo to geo code the note itself.

 

I picasa'd & google earth'd a .jpg so that GPS information was embedded.  I assume it does this correctly. Windows properties indicate GPS information is there.

 

I tried adding the image as directly as possible.  Right clicked on image and said "open with"  evernote.  Evernote opened and added a note with the image. 

 

No location for this note in atlas.

I assume I can't select a group of "boxes" notes and drop them in atlas.

 

 

Any ideas? IFTTT? only with the android app can a image be geocoded?

 

The basis of this is too have a location of my storage boxes....in the garage, in the barn, basement....

 

I have taken pictures of the innards of the boxes and use a labler. voice in the text of contents and subject line it "Box 34"  for example.

 

 

 

If I could add a picture of the barn gps'd or group geocode in picasa then add ....oh it's complicated. But you get the drift.... :)

I don't think Evernote can parse the geo data in an existing photo - it needs a 'live' photograph to be added via the app so that GPS data can be captured at source.  I also don't think that the resolution will be good enough to show you where on your property a picture was taken - you might want to keep that as a separate list somewhere...

I am much more interested in the coordinates of my note locations (in decimal degrees) than I am a geocoded place name. Is there a way to simply extract and display the actual geographic coordinates?

Don't know if this is the smartest solution, but I activate the map application on my iPhone, send the current position to my Evernote Mail account where it appears in decimal degrees. Then I copy and paste it into my note (using Windows 7).

I am testing this right now and I know how to do it.

You can put an image into a note on desktop or anywhere. But, when you go mobile and look from behing the Info button, you will instantly see the coordinates from that images gps data!

But, the data will not show on desktop, and I am testing it now, but it seems that you have to open and save the note on the mobile, then after syncing the gps will show also on the desktop!

I even waited for Evernote to Index the image and hoped it to read the gps even from the desktop, but no..

Please comment if you see a different kind of behaviour.
