what use is GPS for a photo?
1

I've worked in the GIS industry for years. I've spent years out in the field wearing/carrying/using GPS gear collecting GPS data.

I know what GPS is.

Why do folks want(need?) GPS on their camera ( I should say what GPS function(s)?)

GPS data so one can say "Oh yeah, I forgot but now I know that picture was shot in Hawaii?"

I'm not being snarky...I honestly haven't got the foggiest idea what benefit GPS data adds to a photo(other then what I mentioned above) so I'd like to know what else can there be?
