View Seeker Location Scout allows users to look at a thumbnail photo, enlarge it fullscreen, and view its EXIF geolocation coordinates as a red pushpin in a highly detailed street map. Photographers can go to the precise spot from which a picture was taken to create their own interpretation of the subject matter. What is the best location from which to capture the Washington Monument at dusk? Photographers can instantly see the sunset and sunrise times for any date at the location of the displayed photo, along with directions for getting there.
