The gps location info in the image file from my Canon 6D is not read by Lightroom 5.7.1. Is there some setting that needs to be turned on?

  • Are you talking about embedded information in the image's EXIF? Or a separate track file? – inkista Mar 24 '15 at 22:42

    I have this same setup (Canon 6D with Lightroom 5.7.1, with camera saving RAW images -- image format was not specified in the question) and see GPS information in Lightroom, presumably thanks to location information embedded in my images. Are you sure GPS is turned on and has acquired your location before shooting photos? If you're shooting JPGs, have you tried examining the EXIF data to ensure that the GPS information is there? – bmhkim Mar 24 '15 at 23:11
  • Hi, I'm shooting raw and the gps info is embedded into that file. – ego_ Mar 25 '15 at 5:49
  • Do you mean the map tab? Are you online? The map is a web service. – Jakub Sisak GeoGraphics Mar 25 '15 at 13:21

    I mean that when I look at the meta/EXIF/etc info inside LR the GPS information is empty, even though it has info when I look at the actual file. @Jakub I would suspect that the Map tab gets automatically updated if these entries had been filled out as expected (?). – ego_ Mar 25 '15 at 15:32

During import, under ´metadata` I had checked off and left the fields blank, meaning LR would overwrite any values present. Uncheking fixed the problem!
