Display location of pictures based on EXIF data
@spixi opened a PR about that and the discussion started on loomio was on a wrong thread so I'm opening this one.
Basically, this is about getting the location data from EXIF and then allow the user to display it on a map.
It has first been implemented on the
Notice the small marker at the bottom right of the picture. When you click on it, a map opens:
So the current problem with this design is that the map is really small. You can't properly navigate in it so it becomes quite useless.
The proposition here would be to integrate this feature (a marker at the bottom right of the picture) inside the lightbox (the view displayed when a picture is clicked), as suggested by @denschub.
Here is a summary of how the feature can look like (feedback welcome if anybody has suggestions):
- The lightbox is completed to have info displayed on hover (Author, link to the post, location marker... see screenshot below)
- When clicking the location marker, the map is displayed in front of the picture
- The location marker can be kept on the
/photos page in my opinion as it is really small, but when it is clicked, the lightbox is open, with the map open (state described above) instead of trying to display a map in a really small tile.
What does everybody think about that?
