The output of my GeoTagged Photos to Points tool gives a "-9999" in the direction field. Examining the EXIF data of the photos, I can see that they do, in fact, have a bearing embedded. I'm wondering why this information isn't captured in the output feature class?
What device is being used to capture the images? Based on the syntax of exif_data.png file, I am wondering if the Geoprocessing tool is having a hard time parsing the EXIF data into a readable format that it can write to the attribute table?
Are you able to provide a txt file output of the EXIF information? I would like to compare it to some images that I have on my end.
