Features

Name of the addonOpenStreetMap (OSM) Inverse Geocoding
TypeProcedure and database extension
Description

Get additional meta data of the selected photos, which will be stored directly in the jpg file, in accordance with the usage policy of  https://nominatim.org/. It is important that no existing metadata (independent of the add-on) is changed or deleted (the different input parameters described below only refer to the data fields of the respective add-on). The newly acquired information is stored in a separate namespace in JSON format in the XMP segment of the photo metadata.

During indexing, PicApport uses this data to generate additional search fields.

According to the usage policy of nominatim.org a maximum of one photo per second is requested.
