Geotagged Images panel

source:trunk/resources/images/dialogs/geoimage.svg Keyboard shortcut: Y — one of the JOSM panels

This panel is a viewer for photos from a geoimage layer.

It shows all photos from a source layer, whether geotagged or not. Other source layers containing images like e.g. GPX waypoint images or the Mapillary plugin use this panel as well. Several source layers are represented in the panel via tabs.

The dialog title shows the layer name and the name of the currently displayed image. Below are the image layer tabs (if needed) with the layer name and a button to remove the layer from the image viewer. The active tab is raised and indicated by a star (*) in front of the name. By clicking on the the tabs, you can switch quickly between image layers. The image currently displayed is highlighted in bright red in the map view. There is a selected image in each layer. These other selected images are highlighted in dark red in the map view.

The tabs are displayed in the same order as the layers, from lowest to highest. But if there is more than one row of tabs, the active tab is in the bottom row. When there is only one tab, the tab is hidden. In expert mode, the layer number is added to each tab, between square brackets. (Tabs exist since r18621.)

Source Layer

A source layer can be added when an image of the layer is selected in the Map view and the current source layer is not the active layer. This may get confusing when navigating between several Geoimage layers.

Zoom and position

Zooming is possible with the mouse wheel and left/right mouse button click or a left mouse button dragged rectangle selection.
The position can be adjusted with right mouse button drag.


The Geotagged Images dialog has several buttons which operate on the photo:
