Map / GPS position

Adding metadata is one thing – in many cases it would also be handy to have access to Google maps (like the LR map tool) to localise the images when importing.

    Please start working on this one.
    I carry a GPS logger or my Garmin GPS. They provide GPX data. In Lightroom, I geotag all my pictures using this GPX log. If I receieve pictures from other people on a trip, I put them in order by datestamp and voila, Their PGS coordinates are easy to find in the total series.
    I do use Google maps to be more acurate too.

    Add GPS coordinates via Google Maps, click on the exact location and the coordinates go into the sidecar file. Lightroom does this.

    Canon’s Map Utility even puts those coordinates right into the CR2 Raw file; something I doubt any non-Canon commercial software will ever want to risk attempting. Since DNG files are an open standard, how about putting the GPS metadata right into the DNG file?

      Excellent idea, especially if it could be done for Sony ARW files as well as DNG.

    Another “Must Have” feature in order to consider PhotoRaw as an alternative. I always geotag my photos and I love to see them on a map.
    I am anxiously waiting for a substitute for Lightroom, as I’m not willing to rent a software, so I am stucked at an older version of Lightroom. I bought PhotoRaw 2018 and I must say that I am quite disappointed, as the workflow is not as smooth as Lightroom, not to mention the missing features. It looks like PhotoRaw 2019 fixes some of the issues, but I definitively won’t pay again to find missing features.
    I need to find a comparable product, though, and Maps and offline editing (aka Smart Previews) are mandatory for me. Without this, Photo Raw is a No Go for me.
    Come on, guys: you can do it!!!

    I too need a map module to work like Lightroom to complete my move to On1. My Canon CR2 files have all of the information needed. I could see all pictures at one time populate the world map. Great for seeing areas you have covered while traveling as well as when you need to locate a street name or favorite area you have photos from. The latest Google Earth update broke the link in LR 6 so map module no longer works. The only module I was still using. Canon’s Map Utility is not as useful but all I have left for now.

    Same for me. Bought it once (2018) and missed to much to switch away from Lightroom. Missing the Map feature as well as Smart-Previews. Als like to have the feature to do noise reducing by photo stacking.
    As Marcello Macedo already wrote: Go for it, you can do it!

    Without a map module I won’t switch. I have more than 100,000 photos (many gps tagged). To find photos taken on the same location is without a map feature impossible.
    It is a must have for a photo organizer as today many cameras include gps data.
    Please add it in order to get more Lightroom users to switch.

    As a 6D user who travels , I almost always turn on the GPS when I’m traveling or hiking. After I came back and imported them to LR, I could see the exact location a photo has been taken. It also works other way around. If I want to see all the photos I took, let’s say Madrid, I can see them on the map with the exact location.

    This helps a lot. Please introduce this feature.

    A map feature is a must. So please add this GPS metadata function .. adding, deleting, changing GPS data and view on a map.

    I do a lot of landscape photography and I use the map function in Lightroom extensively. This is one of the things holding me ack from moving to ON1
