FleetMon can display the location of georeferenced photos on a map. If you want to display the location of your amazing photos for future uploads, this article is for you. (Manually geotagging photos that have already been uploaded will soon become available on our website in "My Photos".)

Georeferenced images are a great way to quickly show others where the image was taken. But it is not only great for admirers of your photos, but also for yourself. Imagine having hundreds or even thousands of images in your library. Apps like Adobe Lightroom Classic have an integrated map that will show you all the places where you have taken your images at a glance. This can become especially handy after a few years when you might forget the exact place a specific image was taken.

Some cameras have an integrated GPS chip, which stores the location in the EXIF data of your images the moment you take them. For cameras that don't offer this feature by default, you can either buy an external GPS module (e.g. Solmeta) that will also capture the image location, or connect your camera via an app (e.g. Nikon for Apple iOS) to your mobile phone and get the same result. If neither of these are an option for you, but you still want to geo reference your photos, you can set the location by hand. For this example we will use Adobe Lightroom Classic. But there are other apps and online services, also free solutions, that we will link at the end of this article.

Drag and Drop image in Adobe Lightroom Classic on the map to geotag it.

In the first step, import all the images that you want to georeference to your Lightroom Classic Library. After importing your images, navigate from "Library" to "Map" in the top right menu and just drag and drop the images on the location the camera was (not the taken object!). Thats it! Now switch back to "Library", export your images and after uploading them to our website, the map will automatically appear next to your images. :)

Here you can find a more thorough article on how to work with the map module in Lightroom Classic.
