GPS metadata does not include date/time
« on: July 13, 2021, 02:11:25 PM »
I was looking at the report generated by Metadata Analyst for one of my images and noticed that the GPS Data only shows Latitude, Longitude and Altitude. The date has not been populated from the GPX file.
Is there something I need to do to persuade iMatch to include this data?
Thanks in advance

You don't explain your workflow or how you add GPS data to your files.
This makes it impossible to give tips or to judge if this is really bug in IMatch.

Have you written back the file before running the MDA?
How did you add the GPS data?
In IMatch? How? Or in other application?

When I assign a GPS position to a file in the Map Panel and write back, IMatch produces both a date time in the GPS record (if the file has EXIF) and the XMP record:

[GPS]           GPS Date Stamp                  : 2021:07:13
[GPS]           GPS Time Stamp                  : 12:22:56
[XMP-exif]      GPS Date/Time                   : 2021:07:13 12:22:56
