The photographs we take from our smartphones store much more information than the image shows. The so-called metadata are those that contain the additional information of the image, where we can find, among other things, the place where the photo was taken. Therefore, we want to present you a very interesting trick that will allow you to use your iPhone to organize photos according to their location on a map.
The best thing is that to achieve this, we will not need to occupy additional applications because it is a native function of the system.
Organize photos based on their location on a map
The file organization criteria in different operating systems can be multiple and this is very useful. Not all of us handle the same dynamics about the smartphones we use, in that sense, while some feel comfortable organizing their photos in chronological order, others would prefer to do it according to the place where they took it. The idea is that each user has the possibility to quickly find any photo. If in your case, you prefer to do it according to the place where they were taken, you should know that you can also use your iPhone to organize the photos according to their location on a map.
In this way, you will have a map with marks in the different places where you took a photo. To achieve this, the system relies on the metadata of the image. By containing the location where they were taken, the system simply takes this information to position it in the correct place on the map.
To get started, open the Photos app and then go to the “Albums” tab. Then, scroll down and select the option “People and Places” and then choose “Places”. Now, activate the map switch and you will immediately see how it is generated, showing photos in different places.
It should be noted that, to organize photos according to their location on a map, you must have the location services of your iPhone enabled. In this way, you can with your iPhone organize your photos in a much more graphic way and find them quickly, knowing where you took them.
