    Exclamation Posting A Photo? Read Here First!

    I found that if you have a GPS enabled Cell Phone, and you take pics of your new find, the GPS coordinates of your find are available to anyone who can see the picture!!!! There is a header with information called Meta Data at the front of every image file. Phones with GPS include this data in the header, and it can easily be read with Photoshop and a few free tools available online. We should all be VERY CAREFUL when taking pics from GPS enabled cell phones, especially at our secret dig sites! I almost gave away my site that has been giving up Indian bone tools and pre-forms.

    Here is a link explaining how to turn GPS tagging off in today's most popular phones.
    I Can Stalk U - Raising awareness about inadvertent information sharing

    Here's what the U.S. Military recently told it's Soldiers:
    "But soldiers who upload photos to Facebook "could broadcast the exact location of their unit," wrote Rodewig, citing Steve Warren, an administrative officer in the intelligence office of the Army's Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE). Warren gave Rodewig a chilling example of the consequences of geo-tagging:

    When a new fleet of helicopters arrived with an aviation unit at a base in Iraq, some soldiers took pictures on the flightline, he said. From the photos that were uploaded to the Internet, the enemy was able to determine the exact location of the helicopters inside the compound and conduct a mortar attack, destroying four of the AH-64 Apaches."

    Clearly I don't know how to find you. I put the coords in Google maps and it says you are in the Philippines.

    While I have aimed in my postings to be irenic and conciliatory, rather than polemic, I have yet endeavored to set forth the
    truth, let it favor or impugn whom it might. Any notice of misrepresentations or mistakes occurring in these prose will be most thankfully received
    by the author.

    That is Odd Matt, when I feed them into Google Earth I get this! The yellow stick pin is my marker so I remember where I caught all the nice fish. The grey square with the coordinates is what the search returned. The photo was taken from about 3 feet closer to the water....accurate enough for my blood!

    Oh Matt, I think I figured it out, you must remove the comma's from the GPS numbers and add a zero in front of any single digits. 80,9.11 errors out, but 80 09.11 works perfectly.

    ScubaFinder, thanks for alerting all of us to this ugly reality! I want only friends & family to know where I am, and only my detecting buddy son to know my fave digging spots. Don't need phones that are smarter than I am babbling my whereabouts to the universe! Yep, I'm gonna stick to my minimalist dumb cell phone instead of upgrading! And for those of you already hi-tech, now you know how to disable broadcasting the GPS features to unknown folk. HH to all! btw, Good Looking Fish, yum! Andi

    Yours is off, the only meta data I saw was the record of me opening it in Photoshop. No worries for you!
