    I found a plugin that helps me: Google-Maps-GPX-Viewer and a pointer to the gps info in the EXIF data in the photo.

    However i did not yest find a php routine that gives me the gps data to put in the Maps shortcode… Anyone who can help me????

    To put photos on a map I use NextGEN-Gallery plugin with NextGEN-Gallery-Geo plugin add-on. Result is (a photo gallery and) a map with interactive pins placed at each photos location.

    To show a GPS track captured on a cell phone I convert text file with co-ordinates (from the cell phone) into GPX format using (http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/convert_input?convert_format=gpx) then upload the GPX file to Google-Maps-GPX-Viewer.

    Both options work fine.

    Thank you very much, you helped me out!

    @opajaap — Oops, I was jumping between several threads and when I got back to this one I thought it was about the GPX-Viewer… my bad.

    The PHP EXIF library has “exif_read_data” function to extract metadata from Jpeg files (http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.exif-read-data.php). Is this what you are looking for?

    I knew about the exif_read_data, but did not know yet that there are elements in the $exif result like:

    $exif = exif_read_data($picture_path, 0 , false);
    
    $exif['GPSLatitudeRef'],
    $exif['GPSLatitude'][0..2] etc...

    That wass exactly the missing link

    @opajaap Yes this is what I am looking for. Great job!!! Nice to see you included a choice of (OSM) maps. Personally i prefer to see map standard more zoomed out, but maybe you included a setting for it? A great plus would be a map where you can see al the pictures on a map, like in the Nextgen plugin. See example http://bert.kroft.nl/benfietsen/?page_id=866&show=gallery . But most of all you did a great job already.. tnx

    I use the plugin Google-Maps-GPX-Viewer, it is a prerequisite for this feature, you will have that plugins settings available ( whatever it may be ). WPPA+ creates a ( configurable ) shortcode for the GPX vieuwer, so this is max flexible.

    No, that is not my design idea: The location ( map ) is an attribute of the photo, not the other way round. Sorry.

    @opajaap I tried to implement this in my site. On your site you write “This feature requires the plugin Google-Maps-GPX-Viewer and the text w#location in the Custom box.”
    I installed the plugin, but where to i put the text w#location ? What is a Custom box and where can i find it.
    I am not that experienced with WordPress. Hope you can make it clear to me.

    Thanks

    Go to the Photo Albums -> Settings admin page.
    Open Table II ( Visibility ), by clicking on the banner, then subtable B ( slideshow related settings ) also by clicking on its banner.
    Check the box on line 14: Show custom box.
    Enter w#location in the text field at line 15.
