Geotagging with ExifTool missing the related Altitude Tags
« on: April 05, 2010, 12:18:42 PM »
I just discovered the command line
exiftool -geotag track.nmea a.jpg


Seem miss to produce "GPS Altitude" Tag and the "GPS Altitude Ref"

All other tags was there. Except the  "GPS Altitude"


A sample below show the GPS tags the exiftool -geotag track.nmea a.jpg produce, and you will notice it did not have the related Altitude tag.
Can you investigate the problem? or What I need to do to get the Altitude information tagged

Thank

It could be that the NMEA doesn't contain altitude information.

If you could attach a sample NMEA file I could investigate.
