Description PCB 2010-10-14 11:00:05 UTC
Version:           1.2.0 (using KDE 4.4.5) 
OS:                Linux

While starting to geotag my older pictures, I had some problems that I think can be overcome by a few improvements to Digikam. Just one small example: Assume you have GPX-Records and a bunch of pictures you want to geotag. This can be done via the Geotag correlator already included, which is fine. But if the GPX record was not complete, or you happen to be in an area with poor GPS reception or even in a building, then not all of your pics will be geotagged. Thats ok so far.

My problem is that I want to easily find out which of my pictures have _not_ been geotagged so far. This is not only limited to single albums, but to my whole collection.

So, I have two suggestions for improving Digikam in this point:

1. There already is the possibility to filter images (left side) to, e.g. only show pics with a certain tag. This mechanism could be expanded to optionally show all pictures without geotagging information. This would help identifying pics without geotag on a collection-wide level

2. In album view, I can already choose which information to display below each pic preview, such as filename, date, file size etc. This could be extended to also display if there is already a geotag associated with this pic. I don't think it would be very reasonable to display the coordinates themselves there. But, for example, what about an icon? Each pic that was geotagged gets an (optional) icon in the lower left of the preview, depiciting, e.g., the earth (or whatever). This would allow me to easily find the pics in my album that were not yet geotagged.

I think both suggestions would clearly improve the act of geotagging pics in Digikam.

Oh, and as a side note: Keep up the good work! :-)

Reproducible: Didn't try

I would like support this wish; in my daily`s work with DK, I appreciate any procedure to simplify workflow. Sometimes, work is similar to a set-algebra deal.

It would easy getting collections consistently which is an accepted pre-requisite in any database.

Can we close this file as resolved for 2.3.0, and add this new geolocation filter feature in NEWS file ?

Thanx for information :-) !

Maybe, the mentioned solution should apply to watermarks and metadata as well as wished earlier.

Hi Gilles,

I only implemented an additional filter, which we could mention in the NEWS. But this wish is about an icon on the images to indicate the geotagging status, so I think we should keep it open. By the way, feel free to move this filter's UI elements further down in the filter panel, if you think the others are used more often.
