I have JPEG files made by Nikkon camera with geotags in them. I have confirmed that when i upload these images to the social media or mediawiki they show their geolocation tags. However, when i use tools exiv2 or similar nothing is printed.

Is there any tool (preferrably console based) that can print and maybe manipulate these tags?


Exiftool should be able to read and write geotags. Here some information about working with GeoTags from the project page.

It is by the way a cli solution.

Install on 16.04 should be easy as:

sudo apt install libimage-exiftool-perl


sudo apt-get install libimage-exiftool-perl
