A long time ago I took pictures on a trip, and also collected GPS positions. I wrote a script that uses
exiftool to set the GPS metadata on the pictures, e.g.
exiftool -overwrite_original -exif:gpslatitude=25.698618 -exif:gpslongitude=32.640064 -xmp:gpslatitude=25.698618 -xmp:gpslongitude=32.640064 dscf2495.jpg
I can see the correct latitude and longitude in the Details tab of the Windows file info. However, when I upload it to Google Photos, the Info tab doesn't show the geolocation (map and pin) that it shows for pictures from my phone, for example.
Any idea what EXIF tags does Google Photos look at to determine geolocation? I have the feeling I'm missing something silly, like a GPS version or something.
