During documentation writing today, I noticed that my WlGallery suddenly (?) started displaying the geotags in pictures taken with my Palm Pixi which I set a long time ago to store (and share) location information. I t looks like this has started working  earlier, but gone unnoticed. pixi-wlgallery-geotag I also looks like it uses cell tower triangulation, not GPS data (when the latter is not available?): pixi-wlgallery-geotag2 At such a granularity, this feature can not be useful for generating documentation. But maybe for excursions?

Also, the Pixi does not always add geotags: is this limited to pictures taken when there are network connectivity issues?
  3. Also seems like editing operations in wlgallery, including create panorama, “eat” the geotags in the output image….
