Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):

I received a photo from my mom in SK, Canada, so uploaded it in the UK, then manually chose the location of the observation. Now it says the location is Oxford City Center, UK, but the map shows Regina, SK.

I’m not sure if it will replicate, but probably:

Step 1: Upload a picture with no location data

Step 2: Manually select a location far from the current location of the user/device

You need to change the locality notes, which upload from the geotagged photo but don’t change if the location is manually updated.

You can get there by editing the location and selecting the three dots in the upper right.
