Let’s create places

In our last post we showed you how to create a Place one by one through the Place Administration. Now, we’re going to show you how to go about creating Places through geotagged photos.

before we get started, remember there are 3 ways you can add Places in the Walkabout system.

1. Manual Creation — Creating Places one by one in the Place Administration panel.
2. Geotagged Photos — Upload your geo-tagged photos into the Places Administration and watch as each photo creates a new Place.
3. Bulk .CSV Upload — use our nifty .CSV template to create a spreadsheet of all your Places and upload them into the system all at once.

Here’s how you can create Places with geotagged photos.

To get started, you just need to click on the Import/Export button in the Place Menu.
Then click Import from images.

This will open the Photo Import Wizard

Assign the photos to a Map, Layer, and Category, and then either drop files into the panel at the bottom of the wizard, or click the panel to choose photos off your computer. Remember photos should be less than 1M.

Once you’ve uploaded all your geotagged photos, click Save and your new Places will populate into the Place Menu.

From here, you can edit individual Places to add any additional information.
