How to geotag your docs proper in ipernity? Hm, actually I geotag many of my photos - which is much to circumstantially if you have to geotag just a few thousands. ;)

How to impove the geotagging inside of ipernity?

Firstly I would like to geotag every photo which I put to a group. But if you found a photo inside your stream which would fit to a group and you would like to geotag this photo firstly before put it inside the group it wasn't easy to do this - you had to open the doc - manager and scroll and scroll throw you whole stream - or give the doc firstly a "special tag" like "djhdjgfh" which you could search inside the doc-manager after that to find this doc...
It wasn't possible to call the geotagger directly at the photopage - just for this single photo- and that was just bad.

Requesting of a geotagging-script

At flickr I had used a neat bookmarklet for that which open the geotagging-manager at the single photopage. Advantages that accrued might to be the ability to see a mid-size version of the doc during the geotagging (you could exactly see what you had to tag). Others are the sayed one - it's just easily operated if you would geotag just a single photo somewhere inside your stream. And surelly more people would geotag the docs if they see the geotag-link on every single page- not just after 2 clicks somewhere in the menubar.
No, I don't want a 100%- copy of flickr - but during the time I used flickr I had tune it the way I like it (or better- others who are able to do it had done this for me)- and now I miss some of these "special-features". It's like an debianuser who sit firstly on a windows-system and wondering how he could do a chmod in a console- he surelly would like to open cmd and then searching how to install chmod... ;)
Does anybody have the nessessary skills to do the job?

How to geotag you docs?

Another question I had during doing the geotag-thing was the question which was the "correct" point of the geotag. There are mainly two possible variants which had both some pros and antis- so I don't really know which I should use...

  1. Get the geotag at your position, the position of you camera etc.
  2. Put the geotag at the part of the map which you could see on the video or the photo

Since now I choose variant 1. I thought this might be the best solution to show everyone on which location I was standing to take the photo (sorry, most of my docs are still photos...). This was nice I thought...

But if I take a photo out of my windows or on a high spotting-point, and zoom close to a point which was possible kilometres away from my actual inhabitancy nobody would see on the map what I'd taken...

Recently I switched to option 2 which might be more helpful to find similar photos of the same spot by other photographers - but maybee somebody would like to know where my photolocation was....
Lotsenhaus For example the picture on the right page was tagged in a way in which you could easily see the building on the map - but not the position of me during taken the picture (no, I don't swimming, I sitting on position which was labeled with "2" on the photo above).
OK, it might be no problem to geotag this photo with variant 1. and set the geotag to position "2" cause at this pic the photo-subject was just ~100 metres away and there aren't many possibilities around which building I could taken during sitting on spot "2"... but what's if I sit about 1 kilometre away from this spot and just spin the wheel on my camera to get closer instead of swimming directly to the spot...? ;)

I really don't know which was the "normally" used variant to geotag a photo. And if it was variant 2 - where I had to put the geotag-point if I take a wide-range photo of a landscape, a mountain...? Does anybody had a proper solution, and please - describe why you would like to chose your one.
Singing: The geotagging-dot needs an arrow... and a field to put a subtense-bar with the metres to the photographed-object inside... ;-)

Some small suggestions how to improve the ergonomy in ipernity...

The navigation inside ipernity miss a little bit ergonomy (just a little!)... The point was that it wasn't easy to navigate to a special photo inside your stream after you switched to the single-doc- view.
If you do so you could see just 8 docs around the actual one. But there was no option to switch back to the paged-view which you recently had left- just by using the back-button of the browser which wasn't the best choice if you see many pics after you left the paged view....
This really sucks if you view a few photos in single.-photo- view and if you then would like to go back to page 73 of your photos...

Another small point was the missing ability to add tags to blogpostings during the writing of them - so many guys would forget to tag them - just like to geotag their photos...
