Geo.txt in webODM

Aside from this post - Image Geolocation Files

is there solution to using geo.txt file in webODM? how do I pass it in? I placed geo.txt in the images folder but that did not get recognized. I couldn’t find any place in the option list to specify the geo.txt file location.

This is the webODM I am using

Tnx !

Hey, how did you generate it?

Is it possible it is malformed?

it looks like this and on it goes…

DSC05631.JPG   -24.82008   -49.1364275   707.51

but is there a way to specify the path? is it supossed to be in the images folder?

The file must be named geo.txt (lowercase) and you upload it along with the images.

WebODM / NodeODM will pick it up and use it.


I can confirm that I have done this in the latest WebODM/NodeODM.


Tnx for the replies.

I tried again using a file of the form below named geo.txt placed in the images folder

DSC07162.JPG   -25.8243947   -49.1365169   705.73

and I got these warnings in the log

What is it that I am missing?

Appreciate the help.

Lowercase/uppercase filenames mismatch?
