I'm still on Lightroom 6.14. I'm going to try to manually GSP tag a number of old photos (i.e. not with a gpx tracking file, but with manually dragging onto the map). I've done the Google Maps API hack, so I can still see Google Maps in the Maps module.
A couple of questions:
1. I have a couple of photos which I've dragged manually onto the map, about 10 feet apart. They show the same GPS location (degrees, minutes, seconds), but are shown at different locations in the map. Is Lightroom storing some extra sub-second information which it is not showing? (When I looked at an exported JPEG, it shows a sub-second value.)
2. Is it possible to automatically apply altitude when using the maps module? i.e. for altitude to automatically be worked out when tagging to a particular GPS location?
Thanks - Calum
