Exif data on media items

Abstract

The Location and Exif sections on media items contain data to support the Exchangeable image file format standard.

Media items in the Content Editor include fields that support the Exchangeable image file format (Exif) standard.

A media file can contain information that links this file to a specific geographical location. Sitecore stores this type of information in the Location section on Sitecore media items.
