Work with geotagged photos in QGIS.

Create shapefile from a set of photos with coordinates in EXIF tags.


Installation notes

Plugin is available via official repository.

Photo2Shape is designed for QGIS version 1.0.0 and higher. There are no dependencies, all necessary files are included in package.

You can obtain sources from our SVN:

svn co photo2shape

How does it work

After plugin installation and startup by clicking


main window will appear


Now specify all necessary information:

  1. Enter path to the folder with photos
  2. Enter output shapefile filename (also it is possible to change encoding of attributes)
  3. To load new shapefile as layer in project check "Add result to canvas"

Shapefile creation will take some time (depends of number of photos). If there are photos without GPS tags they will be skipped and at end you will see list with skipped files and reason why it skipped.

In the attribute table following info will be recorded:

  • full path to the file
  • filename
  • latitude
  • longitude
  • altitude
