Hello!

I'm incorporating lat/lon locations from QuickCapture photos. Is there a difference between Button/Data/Capture fields/Device variable Location > lat/lon and the Photo > lat/lon?

In short, the 'Location Latitude/Longitude' means the coordinates when a button is pressed in QuickCapture, the 'Photo Latitude/Longitude' specifically means the coordinates when a photo is taken in QuickCapture.

For example, when pressing the 'Deer' button like below in QuickCapture, the value of 'Location Latitude/Longitude' variables is captured. Then the camera dialog appears, now when you press again to take a photo, the value of 'Photo Latitude/Longitude' variables are captured and are saved to the photo EXIF tags. In most scenarios, the captured coordinates of these two locations are almost the same, but in some at-speed data collection workflows, a user may press the button at one location and take a photo at an updated location. Or some people just require the exact location info where the photo is taken, so the 'Photo Latitude/Longitude' variables become more useful to them.
