Bulk JPEG Import

Overview

This section covers how to import GPS meta data from JPEG photos in bulk.

This feature is intended for users who have taken pictures using a device that supports saving location data to the picture.

WP Go Maps will read the GPS data from your JPEG photographs, create a marker for each JPEG, and upload the JPEG to the markers picture / gallery field.
