           Summary: Geolocation position not remembered or initialised
           Product: digikam
           Version: 0.10.0
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: dkde at gardnersworld.org

Version:           0.10.0 (using KDE 4.2.2)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

Maybe there is some logic that I have missed and this is a wish, not
a bug, but I cannot figure out what is supposed to happen.

I have lots of images that are not tagged with any GPS co-ordinates.
However, I have already tagged them with "Places/<Country>/<City>"
and similar tags, so I select them by those tags and them edit their
co-ordinates using the available feature. I want to geolocate things
a bit more accurately than just by city, so after editing all the
co-ordinates to set a rough location, I often select a subset of the
images filtered by the "Places/..." tag and edit their co-ordinates

The problem I have is that I cannot for the life of me figure out
where the initial co-ordinates in the "Edit Co-ordinates" dialog
box are coming from. Sometimes it seems to be from the selected
images, sometimes it is some else entirely. If I select a single
image, it is usually OK, but if I select several images, even if
these images already share the same co-ordinates, the initial
co-ordinates seem to be some random location from some earlier
image in my editing session (often on the far side of the planet).

I would like if the initial co-ordinates could be determined as

   Use the co-ordinates from the single selected image, or, if
   multiple images are selected, from the first image in the
   selection that has co-ordinates.

   If the none of the selected images have co-ordinates, use
   the co-ordinates set the previous time the Edit Co-ordinates
   dialog was shown. This allows me to locate more images in the
   same area as others I have just located, as that is how I
   often work. I do not see much benefit to showing me that the
   image is on the equator in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean,
   but a reset button might be of some use.

Can anyone explain what logic is current used? I cannot figure it
out at all.
