Geotaging update??

Post Mon Jun 21, 2021 12:13 am


Is anyone able to get geotagging working the way it used to?

I uploaded some geotagged photos, and if you click "view map", the map opens to show the entire North American continent. Is there a way to specify a sensible zoom level? There are no map markers that correspond to the photo, but if I zoom the map in far enough, I can see that the process of extracting the GPS coordinates worked fine, but without the map markers, its usefulness is limited.

BTW -- if I go to maps.pbase.com/abh, the markers show up correctly, it's just the "View Map" on the photo that's not working right.

Yes, I have the same problem. It works only with the MAPS option on the gallery screen. https://maps.pbase.com/etc. Maybe you can send a e-mail.

I doubt anyone is still working on Pbase.com development. Quite frankly, I keep expecting it to shut down. Has anyone heard from the owners in the past year?

The thought has been crossing my mind for a long time now, but each day I'm glad to be wrong about it. Still, it'll have to happen some day. It's a "mom and pop" operation, so selling it on might not be all that easy even if a buyer could be found. But that said I for one haven't encountered any reliability issues for ages now; the parts that work, work... and short of something catastrophic happening it may very well run on autopilot for a long time to come.

Nonetheless... I've started to spend a little time each week updating my old images so that they have captions and keywords embedded in them so that if I suddenly need to move elsewhere, I can. At present any comments that people have made would be lost if the big crunch were to happen, which would be unfortunate... but thankfully still hypothetical for the moment.

No... but my membership timer was ticking down and I just signed up for another year (it's only 23 bucks, so why not?) and the process was smooth and easy, no bugs, no glitches, no hassles. The site may be like the Marie Celeste (at least as far as the helm goes), but it's still sailing in a straight line.

I agree with everything you wrote. The site is good for posting and linking images. But it would really help to build confidence in the customer base, if the owners would periodically just give a word or two update. Like you, I have been slowly moving links to other storage sites and posting more on other sites.
