How to upload and view images

Only georeferenced photos will be able to be uploaded to METAGEO, so make sure that the geotagging is turned on for your camera.

For supported cameras, the platform will show the location and orientation of the image. This includes photos from drones, aircraft (airplanes and helicopters), mobile devices such as Android and iPhones, DSLRs with GPS and more. Each camera manufacturer has different ways of specifying the orientation of the photo. If the orientation is not supported, it will be shown as a downward facing image.

To upload images and have them visualized in 3D on a map, there are two main ways: the + button on the top of the layer panel, or the button on a folder.

The + button will upload the images to the last selected folder. You may upload one image, or several at once.

The ⁝ button will upload to whichever folder you click on the button on.
