pulldata("@exif", ${q_1photoa}, "GpsLatitude")

 

The above works on images but when appearance is set to annotate, the pulldata on '@exif' calculations stops working

Is this to be expected?

Hi @TL2,

Yes this is expected. The pulldata @exif does not work on annotated images and once the image and annotation are saved, a new image is created which removes the exif data from the original photo added to the canvas.

An enhancment ENH-000121761 has already been logged with Esri Support to preserve exif information in annotated images. This is currently in our backlog and something we will look into further as part of upcoming annotation tool enhancements we are planning.

Regards,

Phil.
