Topic: Geotagged photos mapped to wrong location

When I'm out hiking, I take a bunch of photos of the scenery and photograph my GPS to record the coordinates. Later, I use GeoSetter to add the coordinates to the rest of the photos. When I upload my pictures to PhotoSynth, PhotoSynth detects the geodata, but when I look at the map, it put my photos in the middle of the Pacific Ocean instead of on the Pacific Coast. I've been manually moving them back to the coast, but I wonder if that's just making the error even worse (ie, attaching new wrong coordinates to my photos).

Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks,
Brent

Hi, Brent,

Tony Ernst (the lead on Photosynth's test team) would probably like to take a look at the exact photo files that you used.

There's a similar discussion I started last year here:

You can get ahold of Tony here: http://photosynth.net/userprofilepage.aspx?user=TonyErnst

Brent, Nathanael's right, Id love it if you could send me one of the geotagged jpgs you used in your synth.  Without this it fairly impossible to troubleshoot.  You can find my email address in my profile.

Thanks
Tony
