After getting the map visible I managed to place a marker on the map and created a location from that point. The lookup functionality worked well and I then applied that location to several of my files. It appears that the metadata fields that got populated were the ITPC extension LocationShown tags. I would prefer to have the LocationCreated tags populated. Is there some way to configure IMatch to do that automatically? I did read what I could find in the help file about using the map panel and other location functionality but was unable to find a way to configure what metadata gets written when a location is assigned.
QuoteIn the meantime, perhaps somebody can help me to understand how one would use a metadata template to accomplish this. If I understand correctly, using metadata templates would require me to first apply the location to the files so that the location information populates the location shown fields and then apply the template to the same files. I'm assuming that the template would have to look for the location information in the location shown fields and then write it to the location created fields. Is that how it would work?

Quote from: Mario on December 03, 2015, 07:35:34 AMWhen I recall it correctly, Geo-Setter has an interactive way. You drag an arrow from the camera location on the map to "where it points at", and this is recorded in location shown.

These tags are Composite\Country, Composite\State/Province, Composite\City and Composite\Location.
QuoteI noticed that the Location Shown tags were already populated with copies of my Location Created text fields, so apparently they're already being mapped that way.
Quote from: TomS on December 04, 2015, 01:40:49 AMThe fields/tags that Mario has employed will assign the values to the Location Shown fields not the Location Created.
QuoteI do have one question about it. Why does it have an immdl extension instead of an immdt extension?
QuoteThat (.immdl) is the extension IMatch creates when saving a metadata layout.
Quote@Mario: Is this part of the ExifTool mapping? If so, perhaps I should ask Phil about it?
Quote from: Erik on December 28, 2015, 05:22:55 PMFor my own use, I'm not sure it is worth getting too obsessive about distinguishing those two groups of fields. ... I am finding as I grow with IMatch 5 that there is such a thing as too much metadata.
