[Digikam-users] Geolocation in Raw Imagefiles

Now I have not tested it for a while but there have been problems with
coexisting metadata(e.g. tags) and geo coordinations in the xmp sidecar

If you test, with one pic, to write metadata to the xmp file and then
geolocate I wouldn't be surprised if there will be only geo-data in that
file. The same would also happen the other way around.
