support for photo-waypoints

Is there any support for importing georeferenced/geotagged photos / picture-waypoints as markers with photos, or as markers with links to photos that are shared online elsewhere? If not, is it possible to add some support for that? Maybe another Import menu item could be added for Import -> Photos - point it to a directory, and it populates a datafilter form with all the compatible image files in that directory that have valid coordinates in their EXIF. Storing photos on the caltopo servers would of course be nice but would take a lot of server space. Maybe you could point the import to a online location where the photos have already been udloaded - but, maybe the photo share service stripped out the location data...? Either way, displaying a very small thumbnail with each marker icon on the map would be nifty, perhaps with an option in settings to enable/disable thumbnail display.

    Not yet. It's on the to-do list, for some point, although I can't provide any kind of estimate. TBD whether it would be support for photos, or simply allowing bbcode-style markup in marker comments, which would allow people to add URLs, photos, bolded text, etc.

    Thanks. A fellow SAR volunteer asked this over the weekend, though it was
    for a non-SAR application. Will pass it along to him.
