Have workers out in the field? Now they don’t have to take pictures AND type in the address. Instead, we will extract the exact location from their attachment files by looking up the Exif metadata!
Since image files have GPS data, we will extract the latitude/longitude coordinates for each image and have it added in a field in Airtable. And you can use the exported data to display them visually with Airtable Map Block.
Notes: Airtable strips location data from images when uploaded from the mobile app. Here’s what works and what doesn’t:
- Airtable mobile app ❌
- Airtable form on mobile using HEIC format ❌
- Airtable form on mobile using JPG format ✅
- Desktop ✅
