    Hello,

    I am new here...so I would like to Greet Everyone.

    My name is Przemek and I am a user of Q500K.

    In few weeks I will start using my drone for damage assessment in agriculture.

    Taken photos will be used as a proof of damages.

    Can anyone tell me if the CGO3 have or will have the geotagging ability...

    If not how can I geotag my photos?

    Thanks in advance,

    Przemek

    For what you want to do you have bought the wrong UAV. The Q500 with the CGO3 camera will never have this function. They have stopped all support of this platform a long time ago.
    There is only one way you might be able to get close to a geotagging a photo is through the SDcard in the controller but it would take you ages to figure out locations where the pictures where taken.

    If you like uneec you should have bought the Typhoon H. It has geotagging.
    Many other platforms also have geotagging.
    Sorry but the Q500 was not the bird for this kind of work.

    Thank You Jager for Your reply.

    My company bought this drone and I didn't have any chances to look at it before.

    I have to figure out something.

    The only way I can think of is to buy the GoPro gimbal setup. There are still some retailers still selling them. I'm not a GoPro guy so not sure which GoPro has the geotagging but I'm sure one of them does.
    The only problem with this setup is you cannot start and stop video or pictures from the ST10+. All must be started before take off. I had the Typhoon G with this setup and ran a Git2 knock off GoPro with it. It works OK but is not for everyone.
    Good luck

    Greetings, Przemet!

    This can be done, but takes a few different steps and a combination of a couple different software-services. I had to do this for an orthomosaic map I was hired to do. (I planned to do this job with my Typhoon H, but while shooting some initial lower level shots, something caused my H to drift and clip a tree...).

    This was nearly 6 months ago, so I'll have to go back and review everything I used to get the images Geo-tagged, but I'll dig that stuff up and post my notes here for you shortly.

    The Typhoon H does it well with the CGO3+

    Yes, but this thread is simply about how to achieve the same result with Q500 (or Blade Chroma...), using a CGO-3. Not everyone has a TyH, and this is a great option for getting more uses out of our 'older birds' ;-)

    (In fact, based on using Dr. Vogt's workflow with my CGO-3, I suspect this would even work with CGO-2 camera...).

    I have a Blade Chroma which also does not have geotag the photos. I have used Dr. Vogt's method and it worked. You will need to have an SD card in the controller to record the flight logs. From there its just a matter of learning the procedure and how to fix little glitches.
