How do I create a button when pressed that it will record my lat/long and or my current address?

Is it possible to automatically take the lat/long from the photo geo info should I take a photo?

Marius, you can use a LatLong column type. Its input will provide a button that captures the current position.

You should also look into using the ChangeLocation column type — this wil capture the location when some other column value changes (you could use this to capture the location at which a photo was taken).

We do not have a mechanism to extract the geo info from the exif metadata attached to the photo. The mobile platforms make this difficult for security reasons.

For example add a LatLong field and create an action button with the formula HERE(). Unfortunately we can’t read photo’s geo so you need to read the LatLong at the same time when you take the photo.
