Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 428600
Add GPS data support
Last modified: 2008-11-27 12:10:30 EST
Description of problem:
dcraw currently discards GPS data which is found in the raw file when converting
to TIFF. This is unnecessary and undesirable. I've written a patch (attached)
to change this. The patch has been sent to the upstream maintainer as well. In
the meantime please consider patching the Fedora version.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create raw file with GPS data
2.convert to TIFF
no GPS data in TIFF file
same GPS data in TIFF

Patch to add GPS support
I'll apply the patch in the hope that upstream does as well -- have they already
reacted on or commented the patch?
I just built dcraw-8.81-1.fc9 with your patch applied.

Not yet, but I only sent it right before filing the BZ. I'd give the maintainer
some more time. When it happens I'll note it here.

I've just kicked off building 8.82 -- have you heard anything back from upstream?

Yes, I have. I'll send you the code he sent me privately.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

This is incorporated in upstream as well, closing.
