Summary0000866: Southern Hemisphere not supported from GPS Co-ordinates
DescriptionGeotagging Photos from my GPS-logger with Photo-Tagger (or even manually with XnView using EXIF-tool) the GPS-Co-ordinate on the southern hemisphere is falsely interpreted as being on northern hemisphere, i.e. the Prefix "S for South" and the Prefix "W for West" are not taken into account.

Effect: A photo taken and geotagged in Brazil is interpreted by GeoSetter as being in Jemen.
Additional InformationAttached please find the GPS-Information from a photo taken in Brazil, which GeoSetter finds back in Jemen.
TagsNo tags attached.

I have the same issue not only with North, but also with West. This mean that a picture takes in South America is reported as beeing taken in Afghanistan.
PhotoME, ACDSee and Picasa show them correctly, I have this issue only with Geosetter. See a sample attached.
What going wrong?

In my opinion GeoSetter is correct! The attached image conatains the coordinates twice, in Exif data and in XMP data. The Exif data contain South/West and XMP data contains North/East. You can see it by using Ctrl+I. XMP data has priority in GeoSetter, so it shows it on North/West. The question is, where the wrong data in XMP data comes from. Which software did you use except GeoSetter?
