I have seen lots of threads where people are getting this error when running this tool. Have tried every fix that apparently works for other people, but to no avail. Have also tried using photos with different EXIF formats, one photo, many photos, different paths, in feature dataset, out of feature dataset, etc; no joy. I am using 10.2.2.3552 on Windows 7.

There was a known bug that was apparently fixed before this release. Can anyone tell me if there are still issues with this tool? I am running out of ideas.

Thanks!

Pete

This is the chronological bug list.  You will have to scroll through to see if it has been resolved by a higher version.

Pete,

Dan listed a pretty comprehensive bug list. From glancing at the list, it does not appear to still be an issue in 10.4. Do you have a way to upgrade to 10.4 (or maybe even 10.3.1 to see if it is still an issue)?

Can you also give a more detailed approach to what you are trying to do?

Hi and thanks for the response,

I am not able to upgrade higher than 10.2.2.3552 at this point. Uninstall/re-install did not change the performance of the tool initially until I went through all remaining ArcGIS Program files and deleted any remaining scripts (i.e. ArcHydro and some Batch Edit String Fields scripts). Reinstalling the software at that point fixed the issue. Hard for me to say why or how that fixed the issue, but the Geotagged Photos to Points tool now functions without error.

To provide more detail regarding the approach I was using:

Input folder: A desktop folder with six geotagged photos (all photos were properly geotagged)

Output Feature Class: Tried using an empty file geodatabase and my default geodatabase both into a Feature Dataset as well as directly into the geodatabase. Output to a shapefile was not an option as indicated elsewhere on the web; maybe this was an option in earlier versions.

Optionals: Tried naming an invalid photos table and leaving it blank as well as running the tool with both check boxes checked and unchecked. No combination of these optionals changed the performance.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks!

Pete
