GPS: Create XMP from EXIF

(1/1)

Hi,

when geotagging an image Exiftool writes GPS data to both EXIF and XMP headers.
Now I've got some photos with GPS data only in their EXIF headers. So I would like to copy this data into the XMP part like Exiftool would do it when it would have been used for tagging.

I tried

exiftool "-XMP:all<EXIF:all" <file>

but it wrote invalid data (longitude was set to "east" instead of "west") and did not create all headers which were created by the geotagging feature.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Norb

Hi Norb,

Yes.  The -@ option may be used with the "gps2xmp.args"
file (included in the full distribution) to do exactly what you want.


--- Code: ---#
# File:         gps2xmp.args
#
# Description:  Argument file for copying GPS information from EXIF to XMP
#
# Usage:        exiftool -tagsFromFile SRCFILE -@ gps2xmp.args DSTFILE
#
# Revisions:    2009/01/09 - P. Harvey Created
#
# Notes:        Most of the GPS tags are copied by the first argument, but
#               the XMP GPS coordinates and date/time tags are composites of
#               more than one EXIF GPS tag, so they are handled separately.
#
-XMP:all < GPS:all
-XMP:GPSLatitude < Composite:GPSLatitude
-XMP:GPSLongitude < Composite:GPSLongitude
-XMP:GPSDateTime < Composite:GPSDateTime
# end
- Phil
