A script to select photos from a set, based on geographical location.
A script to select photos from a set, based on geographical location. Either via a decimal latitude/longitude point. Or a photo taken in the desired location, it will look for exif standerized gps lat- and longitude tags.
The easiest way is to use pip to download and install the script.
pip install geoselect

# clone this repo clone https://github.com/FreekKalter/geoselect.git cd geoselect # initialize virtual environment (optional, but recommended) virtualenv venv source venv/bin/activate # install (--editable to hack on code whithout running pip install again) pip install --editable .
There are 2 ways to specify the location to select on. LOCATION can be a “latitude,longitude” specified in decimal degrees like: “41.40338, 2.17403”. Or it can be a path to a photo with exif gps coordinates, it will then search for photos taken at the same location. It will search within a specified radius (default: 1 km).
If --path is set, geoselect will look at that location for images with common file extensions (jpg, jpeg, gif, bmp, png). This can be set to something else with the --extensions parameter. If --path is not set, paths to pictures are taken from stdinput. This way it can be used as a stream filter, like most unix/linux commandline utils. For example take the following pipeline: find /home/fkalter/photos -name '*holiday*' | geoselect --radius 10 "40.783068, -73.965350" | wc -l To count the number of pictures taken in/around central park wich have ‘holiday’ in the filename.
A (expiremental) feature uses the time a picture is taken to gues at wich location it is made. Sometimes the device used to make the picture takes a while to get a ‘gps fix’. So it might not register the gps coordinates for the first picture in a series. The -- time-based option looks for any pictures taken in a short time before or after a picture with the specified location is taken. Because it is very likely pictures taken very shortly after each ohter are taken at roughly the same location.
