Nikon has wisely included the ability to geotag your images with global positioning system (GPS) location data. Now when you shoot a spectacular travel image, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to find that exact spot next year. With the Nikon GP-1 GPS (or an aftermarket brand), the D7000 will record the following GPS information about your location into the metadata of each image:

  • Latitude

  • Longitude

  • Altitude

  • Heading

  • UTC (time)

Using a GPS Unit with Your D7000

The GPS unit you choose must be compatible with the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) 0183 version 2.01 or 3.01 data format.
