Digital maps and geotagging in TagSpaces Pro

Combining a file manager with a map has countless possibilities, here we will present some of them. The maps used in TagSpaces are based on OpenStreetMaps.

Geotagging use cases

Some ideas for using maps in TagSpaces:
  • Save favorite places privately
  • Plan and document trips and places to visit
  • Show pictures from trips on map
  • Present photo galleries on a map
  • Visualize customers or team/club members on a map
  • Manage real estate properties
  • Annotate geographic areas by adding notes on a map

Placing files and folders on a map

To manage geo-tagged files and folders we have created the Mapique perspective. Here are some key features:
  • Extract geo location data from JPEG's EXIF information
  • Place any file or folder on a map
  • Navigate from one folder with geo-tagged entries to another
  • Geo-tag current folder with the current coordinates from the map
  • For the maps we use the popular OpenStreetMap service, you can easily exchange the map tile server with your own.

Using custom map tile servers

TagSpaces Pro can be configured to use custom map tile servers. The screenshot shows TagSpaces using the default map tile server from the OpenStreetMap, the map from OpenTopoMap and two themes from Maptiler.
