One way to have the exact coordinates might be by finding on google
earth the place where the user took the picture. However, this might
be tedious when tagging a lot of images.

I agree that it would be great if we could be able to save geographic
data on KPA database. Once the ability to load the data is there,
people could write plugins or patches to import the data from
different sources: manually; using exif info; parsing a .kml file,
etc. Or even to export data (to a .kml file for example).
