I’m seeing “-1” coordinates for some images, why?

The files don’t have location data. Test them here to confirm. Uploading from iOS? Read below.

I uploaded my photos from my phone. I’m sure they have location data!

They might have location data BEFORE being uploaded to Airtable. The exif data gets stripped if uploaded via the mobile app. Make sure to do it with the web Airtable form.

I uploaded a photo with Airtable form from my phone. Still no location data!
