Maps in the Web client

image_pdfimage_print

This feature is available in the web client in Daminion v 6.4 or higher!

Some cameras and special GPS recording devices extract GPS coordinates and write them into the image files when a photograph is taken. On import, Daminion uses this GPS information to place a corresponding marker on a world map. Image files that don’t contain this GPS information can, at any time, be dragged & dropped (individually or as a group) from the browser into their exact position in map view.

To use the GPS-referencing, you need to be connected to the Internet because the respective suppliers only provide GPS data online.

Geotagging in the web client

To start assigning GPS coordinates to your files, log into your web catalog and click the geo pin icon in the upper right corner to display the Map window.

All files that have embedded GPS coordinates, will be automatically displayed on the map.

Map View with pins

To assign GPS coordinates to the files that do not have them yet, select the files and simply drag and drop them to the desired location on the map.

Tip: You can display all the files with no GPS coordinates by navigating to Saved Searches > No GPS coordinates.
