Summary: Geolocation position not remembered or initialised
Platform: Ubuntu Packages
AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
ReportedBy: dkde at gardnersworld.org
Version: 0.10.0 (using KDE 4.2.2)
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.
