Extract photo geotag

I am trying to figure out where the geotagging is stored in a jpg. My Droid takes a picture, and saves it. When I load the picture in my Droid, and click on "View Info" it shows me:

1. Tags = City, State for where the picture was taken
2. Latitude and Longitude.

When I copy the file to a computer, however, I cannot figure out where that information is stored. I have looked in the EXIF data, looked at the file in a hex editor. Cant' figure it out.

where is the latitude and longitude of the picture stored?

Faststone Image Viewer is capable of displaying GPS information using View -> Image Properties (EXIF ...)
... and, if you are desperately keen to actually SEE where and HOW the GPS EXIF MetaData is stored, then use the standalone JPEGsnoop.exe by Calvin Hass:

For example, this image:
reveals this in the above program's window:
EXIF GPSIFD @ Absolute 0x00000452
    Dir Length = 0x0007
    [GPSVersionID                        ] =
    [GPSLatitudeRef                      ] = "S"
    [GPSLatitude                         ] = 33 deg 56' 0.000"
    [GPSLongitudeRef                     ] = "E"
    [GPSLongitude                        ] = 19 deg 9' 0.000"
    [GPSAltitudeRef                      ] = Above Sea Level
    [GPSTimeStamp                        ] = 0/1

Open in new window

The free IrfanView image viewer/editor also shows this data.
Image menu > Information > click "EXIF Info" button in Image Properties dialog.
The new dialog has the buttons show in the screenshot below:
 .This standalone command line program should also display the GPS Exif data:
