Use multiple formats for GPS metadata
On1 RAW currently expects coordinate data to be exactly in the format “45°24’33.778″ N 122°44’51.677″ W”. However, coordinates are used in many other forms, e.g.:
- 45.409382N, 122.747687W
- 45 24.562966′ N, 122 44.861283′ W
- 45.409382, -122.747687
- 45 24.562966′, -122 44.861283′
These formats all work with Google Maps, and likely work with other tools, too. It should be possible to parse several formats pretty easily, but being able to parse the last one (+/- ddd.ddddd, +/- ddd.ddddd) is particularly important as it’s not an uncommon form. Requiring the “°” is also irritating as that’s not found on most keyboards, requiring unnecessary work to find the correct combination of modifier keys to produce it.
Even if the displayed format remains the same, being able to accept variations for input (which are subsequently converted to the preferred display format) would be very helpful.
Thanks for considering it!
