Back in December I did a post about digiKam's new tagging features. In that article I briefly mentioned another new feature that supports adding GPS coordinates to a photo's metadata. Today I'll explore how to do it.
While I don't know of any digital cameras that come with built-in GPS to automatically add coordinates, it is possible to use a GPS device to gather geolocation data separately. One device marketed for this purpose is Sony's GPS-CS1 GPS Device for CyberShot Digital Cameras. But if you are like me and don't own a GPS, don't despair, it's still easy to add the coordinates yourself.
