#Geotagging

dʒíotǽgɪŋ

Geotagging is when geographic metadata is added to an image - specifically the location where the photo was taken. Some cameras with GPS capabilities can do this on their own, and cell phone images are typically embedded with geotags unless the user opts out, which is often done for privacy’s sake when posting online. If not added by the camera, geotags can be manually added in applications such as Lightroom, so long as the photographer can remember the photo's location. This method is less precise since it is not recorded using GPS.
