Plotting Photos on a Map

Plotting Photos on a Map

I have pictures from an iPhone6, iPhone 7 and a Canon PowerShot.

I know the iPhone 7 photos have the geo coding embedded. But I need to verify the Canon Power Shot is working for geo coding.

And if not, I may buy a new camera for myself.

And how do I view a folder of image and plot them all on a map?

Use an EXIF reader to see all the information contained within your photos

If GPS data is stored in the photo will be listed as part of the Metadata
Metadata can be edited

Hi! You may want to follow what I have typed below :)

In a new layer, click "Import" and then "Your photos". Like this:

I found a few issues:
1. The interface didn't show all my albums until I'd opened and closed one of the ones that was showing. Searching for the album name also worked.
2. Maybe I'm missing something, but I couldn't seem to select all, the normal shift-click on the last item didn't work, I had to select them all individually.
3. Even though I had added titles to the photos in Google Photos, My Maps didn't use those titles, instead it added an address as the title.
4. It would be nice if you could click the photo on the map and open the full size version in Google Photos.

I prefer not to upload my images to the web.

Is there any tool for the Mac where I can generate this map?

Too bad it's not an option on Finder...

It would be a great Mac I need to write it? ;)

I'm afraid I know very little about Macs

Uploading your photos should be avoidable.
If you were to extract the coordinates from your photos you could pin-point them on any online map.

I have a Garmin SatNav device and I can download all maps to my PC and read them offline.
I can plan routes and go to chosen coordinates.
