Mapping Geotagged Photos


Hello, I am interested in letting reports automatically be mapped based on photos that users in send in. Since photos taken from many cameras and phones these days have lat/long information embedded, the information is there -- I am just curious is Ushahidi is capable of reading the information directly from the photo.

If not, and this shows what a newbie I am, does Ushahidi enter reports on the map automatically based on the content of the report, or must an admin individually map each report as it comes in?

Thanks so much!


As far as I know, an admin/validator needs to convert the incoming pre-reports to a valid report through admin panel. There he points the location on the map.
