You may have saw on my last video that I have been chosen by the Pixel Connection in Avon Ohio to be a part of their newly formed Ambassador team. I am uber excited to be a part of the team and I look forward to helping photographers all over the state learn more about photography and take their skills to new levels.
I am super excited to team up with Pixel Connection in Avon Ohio and NeoPro imaging in Cleveland Ohio to present on my use of speedlights on location and a few tips to have more consistent photos in studio!
This year as I was black Friday shopping I decided I would treat myself to an all new phone and with buy one get one attachments, who could go wrong with the Moto Z ? Well this weekend I used it on one of my senior shoots and I wanted to share some of the work!
While at #educon @alvintrusty was talking about fusion tables which is a tool from Google that allows you to map and plot data. The conversation came up about attaching GPS data from images into the map. There are several apps for IOS, Windows, and Mac that will allow you to see this data. I wanted to share a quick tip using one of my favorite tools, EXIFTool to pull out the GPS EXIF data from a folder of images.
The goal for this post is to extract Longitude and Latitude data from a folder of images and export the data in a CSV so it can be easily imported into a Fusion Table.
To get started navigate to http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ and download exiftool.
Install the software on your computer.
Once the installation is finished, open up Terminal or open up your Command Line on Windows.
Here is the line that you need to enter:
“exiftool -csv -filename -imagesize -gps:GPSLatitude -gps:GPSLongitude ./ > long.csv”
This command will go to the folder that you input and read through all of the images and pull out the filename, the image size, the GPS Latitude and the GPS Longitude and export everything to a CSV.
Here is the finished CSV that is opened in Excel:
