Uses OpenStreetMap (OSM) to enrich the photo metadata (photos must contain geo coordinates for this function) and extends the PicApport database with additional search fields (see example in the 3rd screenshot below)
see PicApport Add-on Installation Guide
|Name of the addon||OpenStreetMap (OSM) Inverse Geocoding|
|Type||Procedure and database extension|
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.
