Reading camera GPS information from EXIF in Python
« on: April 21, 2022, 01:50:42 PM »
Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to read the stored GPS coordinates from the EXIF data. My camera is equipped with a GNSS module and stores approximate camera in the EXIF data. I know it is possible to read EXIF data via this command:

Code: [Select]
camera.photo.meta["Exif/GPSLongitude"]
However, this only retuns a string of the rounded coordinates (e.g. '16,22.116E') while I need full precision (and preferably as float or double, but this is less important).

Thanks,
