9: Taking Pictures > FIND OUT WHERE YOU TOOK A PICTURE

FIND OUT WHERE YOU TOOK A PICTURE

Your phone and some tablets include a GPS device. Most of the time, we think of using GPS within Maps to find directions to places, as is covered in Chapter 7. However, many other applications can and do use GPS, including your camera. If enabled, the GPS function in your camera can record the latitude and longitude of every picture you take in a process known as geotagging. How is this useful? Well, it allows you to display a map on your device of the precise location for each picture, which can be particularly helpful when you are traveling and may end up taking pictures of fairly similar monuments or sites. After you transfer your pictures to your computer, you may have programs that can perform similar functions as well using the geotag embedded by your device.
