Automatically geotag photos with a real-time location right after they are taken.

The camera application mostly uses the last known location, which could be old and miles away from your current position.

FineGeotag will try to acquire an accurate location in real-time and update the Exif location tags of the photos taken.

FineGeotag will try to use the GPS and/or the network location, depending on which location providers are enabled in the Android settings.

Optionally a popup will be shown with a thumbnail of the photo and the reverse geocoded address.

Don't forget to disable geotagging of your camera application to prevent interference.

You could use PhotoMap or similar to display geotagged photos on a map.

Works only for JPEG pictures.

Works on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and later.

ACCESS_COARSE/FINE_LOCATION: to acquire locations for geotagging

READ/WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: to write Exif location tags to photos


FineGeotag has no INTERNET permission, so you don't have to be afraid privacy sensitive information is going anywhere.



You can create a GitHub issue for bugs and feature requests or use this XDA forum for questions and remarks.


The application icon is taken from the Geotag Icon Project.

Gson is being used to serialize/deserialize locations.
