I like to download photos to my desktop from Google Photos after I’ve been out at a location for the day and need to upload a bunch of stuff. Every so often, iNat doesn’t get the location data from the photo (even though it’s there). After they’ve been uploaded I need to manually plot them, but I need to find the location on the map. It would be much easier to just be able to select a pinned location, which I can easily do during upload.
The photos seem to get through the “no location check” on upload because I’m manually entering the pinned location name. This way, I can keep the exact coordinates, but have a descriptive locality. It’s only after upload that I see there were no GPS points.
