i am planning to add a feature to Maep so that it displays small thumbnails of geotagged media data. How do i access geotags? I suppose the correct way to access any media files is to go via tracker. Are there any examples to request geoinformation from tracker? A little googling reveals many pages saying that "tracker doesn't index geotags". Is this true? What is the correct way to get geotags of all media stored on the device? It sure doesn't make much sense to ask tracker for a list of all media and than try to extract geotags from them. This would take forever on a big media collection.
