This post to share some new features on map view.
location module is the oldest one. It is available on darktable 3.4.
This module allows to draw shapes on the map to group images from the same region.
The shape can be circle, ellipsis, square or rectangle.
Every location is seen in as a collection in collect module.
For darktable 3.6 now. There is a new choice in map settings about the way to display the thumbnails:
- thumbnail, as today.
- count. Only the count marker is shown, which allows to have an unobstructed view of the map.
As the marker is smaller you can decrease the group size factor to get more accurate groups:
The geotagging module is now able to discriminate the different tracks of a GPX file and is available on map.
On map the user can display the different tracks and the corresponding matching images. It’s then easy to adjust the original date/time of the images to get perfect positions.
