    Viewing your photos on a map

    Adding location information to photos is referred to as geotagging. You can view and tag your photos on a map and show friends and family where you were when you took a particular photo. See Adding geographical positions to your photos for more information.

    Tip

    If you have turned on location detection and activated geotagging in the camera, you can tag your photos directly for map viewing at a later stage.
