I'm adding GPS data with Google Earth option in HG (3.2.2) . When I check the data written to the XMP file I see that GPSVersionID tag is not present. I asked Phil Harvey on the ExifTool forum and he says that this is a "mandatory" tag.


Is HoudahGeo not writing this tag?

Hi!

The GPSVersionID tag should be present. You should see it with the following query:

[CODE]/Applications/HoudahGeo.app/Contents/Resources/exiftool -G -GPS:all YourImage.jpeg[/CODE]

Hi Pierre,

I'm tagging Panasonic RAW files .RW2. I tried your Exiftool command on the RW2 and XMP sidecar and it did not show any info:
 
[CODE]
Mark:HG$ ls -l
total 33576
-rw-rw-rw-@ 1 Mark  staff    16M 28 Dec 15:09 MSC_2012-12-28_0675.RW2
-rw-r--r--  1 Mark  staff   3.7K  8 Jan 20:39 MSC_2012-12-28_0675.XMP
Mark:HG$ /Applications/GPS/HoudahGeo.app/Contents/Resources/exiftool -G -GPS:all *
======== MSC_2012-12-28_0675.RW2
======== MSC_2012-12-28_0675.XMP
    2 image files read
 
[/CODE]
I tried a more 'generic' exiftool command on the XMP file and did get some output related to GPS - but no GPSVersionID tag:
 
[CODE]
Mark:HG$ /Applications/GPS/HoudahGeo.app/Contents/Resources/exiftool MSC_2012-12-28_0675.XMP |grep -i gps
GPS Altitude                    : 42.18 m

GPS Map Datum                   : WGS-84
GPS Latitude Ref                : South
GPS Longitude Ref               : East

[/CODE]

Hi!

Indeed, I tested with an image file rather than an XMP sidecar.
While the GPSVersionID is written to the image file, it is not written to the XMP sidecar.

I'll need to take some time to figure this out.
I'll actually also need to read up on the GPSVersionID tag.

Hi!

I have a release candidate for HoudahGeo 3.2.4.

This should now always write the GPSVersionID tag.
Please give it a try.
