Place Tags and Geotags Relationship
I believe Place tags and geotags are complementary and that it's not an either or choice.
If that's the case would it make sense if:
As well as assigning GPS coordinates to the image file, Daminion also recorded the geotag against the lowest level entry in the Place
So, say that you have selected all images with a Place tag of 'UK\Hertfordshire\Berkhamsted\George Street' and you then search for a geotag and link it to the images, Daminion would store that link against the 'George Street' Place item.
Would it also be possible for Daminion to use the Place data 'UK\Hertfordshire\Berkhamsted\George Street 'to check that there is a match between it and the geotag, warning the user if there was a mismatch?
And if THAT is possible, could we take it a stage further and say that when tags are created within Place tags in Daminion, there should be a checkbox called 'Geotag this Place tag'. If checked, then an auto look up would associate a geotag with that Place tag.
Then when new images are linked to that tag Daminion would automatically add the GPS data to the images' metadata as part of auto-sync.
If a geo tag is added to a Place tag after the Place tag had already been linked to images, then Daminion would assign the geotag to the images.
When a geotag is added to a Place tag, the map window should be forced open so that the user can use the existing facility to check and move the locator pin if they want to
If a user does not want to link Place and Geotags in this way, all they have to is leave the Place tag check box 'Geotag this Place tag' unselected and things would behave exactly as they do today.
