Is this feasible: Extract geolocation data from images?



  • Is this feasible in Nodebb, to extract the geolocation information from an image that is attached to a post? My desire is to have the location data presented in the post along with the image. Possibly the data could be presented as a link to a map of that location or even to an embedded map image that could be manipulated. Zoomed, moved, etc.

    Thank you.

    If the image contains that sort of EXIF data... then yes, it is possible. Whether or not there is a library to parse such information from the image, is a different question :smile:



  • I may commission the Nodebb team for this work. I have been in contact with @julian regarding it.
