I'm wondering whether this is so obvious I just can't see it. Is there a way to convert the altitude data to feet instead of meters? It would certainly help us here in North America...

Hi!

Altitude is currently only displayed in meters.

Thanks for the info. That would be a feature request in my book.

As a side note, I've found that the first iPhoto event I geocoded by loading the library didn't seem to write the altitude data to the files. I just now tried to reverse geocode the same files and again the altitude data does not show when viewing the extended file info in iPhoto. All previous files geocoded before import show the altitude correctly. Is there any way to re-encode the altitude data?

Hi!

Altitude information, when not provided by your GPS track logger, may optionally be retrieved during reverse geocoding.

When altitude information is present you have the option to include it during EXIF export.

I think the problem lies in iPhoto not updating it's database.  The photos were geocoded with altitude info (it shows up in HoudahGeo), but for some reason, the altitude is blank in iPhoto.  I know the altitude data is imbedded in the pictures, as I imported those same photos into another computer and iPhoto shows the altitude info.  It seems I'll need to reset the iPhoto database.  Any ideas on how to do that?  I guess as a last resort, I can delete the pictures and re-import them into iPhoto.  I'm hesitant to do that and lose all my edits...

Again, this is the first set of photos I geocoded by loading them directly from the iPhoto database (all previous were geocoded first, then imported into iPhoto).  I'm wondering whether this could be classified as a bug...

Hi!

Please try iPhoto's "Rescan for Location" command.
