Reading GPS data from JPEG image in WPF app windows 8.1


  • Hi,

    I am developing a Windows 8.1 application using c# xaml wherein I am trying to extract latitude and longitude information from a JPEG image. I am not able extract this information. The code is as given below. please advise. Thanks you..

    var stream = await file.OpenAsync(Windows.Storage.FileAccessMode.Read); var bitmapImage = new Windows.UI.Xaml.Media.Imaging.BitmapImage(); await bitmapImage.SetSourceAsync(stream); myImage.Source = bitmapImage; var decoder = await Windows.Graphics.Imaging.BitmapDecoder.CreateAsync(stream); requests.Add("System.GPS.Latitude");

    var retrievedProps =await decoder.BitmapProperties.GetPropertiesAsync(requests);

    ushort latitude;

    if (retrievedProps.ContainsKey("System.GPS.Latitude"))


    latitude = (ushort)retrievedProps["System.GPS.Latitude"].Value;

    latitudetxt.Text =Convert.ToString(latitude); }

  • Hi,

    You can refer to some codes below:

    m_imageProperties = await file.Properties.GetImagePropertiesAsync();
                    string[] requests =
                    IDictionary<string, object> retrievedProps =
                        await m_imageProperties.RetrievePropertiesAsync(requests);
     if (retrievedProps.ContainsKey("System.GPS.Latitude"))        
                    latitude= ((ushort)retrievedProps["System.GPS.Latitude"]).ToString();
      if (retrievedProps.ContainsKey("System.GPS.Longitude"))
                    fNumberText = ((ushort)retrievedProps["System.GPS.Longitude"]).ToString();

    And you can refer to the sample below:


    In the Scenario1_ImageProperties.xaml.cs file there are two methods you can refer to get the image file GPS data:
