Open a photo that has gps tags in Google maps

Recommended Posts

Hi people,


this is not a workflow, it's a snippet that shows you the location of the photo in google maps is satelite mode.


this is the snippet: 


open "http://maps.google.com?t=k&q=loc:$(exiftool -ee -p '$gpslatitude, $gpslongitude' -c "%d°%d'%.2f"\" {cursor} 2> /dev/null | sed -e "s/ //g")"


how to use it:

  • open terminal
  • activate this snippet while in Terminal
  • open the folder where your photo is located in finder
  • drag the photo that contains gps data to your terminal
  • activate  the terminal window and press enter


It took me some time to figure out how to open the photo in Google maps in satelite mode.

When you activate this snippet, note the location of the cursor, it's not at the end (for a reason 🙂 )


Oh and btw, you need to install exiftool from phil Harvey: Exiftool to use this snippet
