To do: Image Exif Location module for Drupal

In the hopes of forcing myself to follow up on this, I'm writing it here.

I plan to write a very simple module for Drupal that extends the current Image module when the Location module is also present.

It will do one simple task: automatically filling the latitude/longitude information for a photo with valid Exif GPSLatitude and GPSLongitude information.

That is all.


  1. You get bonus points if you manage to do it without relying on Yet Another Library

  2. I've done all of the Exif parsing. The problem I have is that the Location module has no straightforward API for updating nodes.

    The choices are either: manually insert data into the tables or rewrite some parts of the Location module and hope that the developer likes them.

    Either way, it should be relatively straightforward to finish off. It already mostly works.
