It may be helpful to find coordinates on Google Maps if you want to share the exact location (latitude and longitude) for a Snap on your SeekBeak tour. SeekBeak automatically reads the GPS data encoded in the EXIF data embedded in your image, and depending on your preferences, can use that latitude/longitude information to plot out the location on our integrated Google Mapping solution.
However, if your camera doesn’t capture GPS location data or if you have edited the photo in post processing and no longer have that data attached to your photo, there is still an easy way find the GPS coordinates using Google maps, which you can then add to your Snap.
Here’s how to do it:
1. From any web browser open the Google Maps website.
2. Type in the location you want the GPS coordinates for. Example here is the Central Library, Calgary, AB Canada
3. Right-click (or Control+click on MacOS) on the location. Select What’s here? from the menu.
4. The GPS coordinates pop up on the bottom of the screen.
5. Click on the coordinates and they will open up in a new destination panel.
6. Now go to your SeekBeak Tour and open the Snap you want to add the GPS Coordinate data to. Example here is our tour of the Calgary Central Library.
Open up the Properties Section of your Snap.
7. Click the Details tab, and below there is a area to cut and paste the Latitude and Longitude coordinates!
8. Go back to your Google Maps Destination Panel and cut and paste the Decimal Degrees (DD) formatted Latitude and Longitude Coordinates here!
9. If you want to change your Geotag preferences, Open up the Snap Properties again, and click the features you want to enable.
10. Voila! You have successfully added GPS Coordinates to Snaps in your SeekBeak tour!
