Windows 10: Displaying Photos on map

    Displaying Photos on map


    Is there a relatively easy way to display the location of a photo on a map, based on the GPS coordinated stored in the photo? I can see the coordinates in Picasa3 but getting to a location of a map is a bit of a fiddle (so far).

    Ideally, I'd like the map to be either Google Maps or Google Earth, because I'm familiar with those.

    If the date of the photo (or file) could also be displayed then so much the better.

    I have a folder containing over 1500 photos from our recent tour of central Europe. We struggle to remember details of our holiday, and being able to trace our route from the locations and dates of the photographs would be very helpful. Especially when people ask us "what were the highlights". I can get the dates of photos easily enough, but turning them into a location is not so simple for me.

    I can transfer the photos to my Android Tablet is there's a better solution there.

    Google Photos can handle that, research Google Photos/Backup and Sync.

    Windows Live Photo Gallery maps items that have Geo tags to Bing Maps in your default browser:
    (coordinates are often inaccurate though!)

    I'm not sure if Microsoft Photos/Maps has the capabilities.

    Windows Live Photo Gallery seems to require Windows Live, but installing that failed almost instantly.
    I was already using Google Photos to display our photos on our Chromecast/TV. I'll persevere with this.
    Thank you.
