Organize photos based on the location and date/time
Provide on the Onedrive the option to organize the photos and videos based on the location and date/time, similar to the Lumia Storyteller app.
Hi. We just rolled this out today. Please take a look — hit photos and then check out the places tab.

I really want to see my photos on a map. The place names aren't all that useful, or accurate. In a city, I want finer resolution than just a city name, as I did different things in different places. In rural locations, the name of the nearest town probably isn't relevant, as that isn't really where I was.
I really need this feature in Onedrive for Business as well.

Doesn't update? I added a couple of GB of photo's with GPS data. When I check the individual photo's they show a map with their location. But on the places tab these photo's don't show up.

it seems to have disappeared?
In response to Liz's comment below on 9/2, the OneDrive updates did not address this specific ask: to keep photos in the order that a user organizes them by and uploads them from their windows phone. Currently the OneDrive scatters photos in the web app even after you spend countless hours organizing them by the date taken (not modified).

Why it does not work for me ? I click on places tab and it says "get to photos from any device"

This is great! I quickly tried it out and here are some of my initial thoughts:
1. Is there a way to edit the edit the photo's location. I would like to correct the location on the map.
2. Follow up on (1). Is there a way to list all the photos which are missing location info, so it could be added?
3. The city and country are great, but it would be nice if I could add a specific "location name/tag" as in Instagram (which uses Facebook Places) or using Foursquare or read the location name added to the photo using the Geotag feature in Windows Photo Gallery. It is nice to see all the photos taken in Paris, France but it I would like to drill down to the photos taken in the Louvre, for example.
4. Reporting Incorrect City Names - I noticed some city names have some errors, I reported it via the Onedrive Feedback link. There is no option for "Place name", so I listed it as "Other".
Again, this is a nice start.
Please add this feature. Especially to sort by date taken, not modified. It's frustrating to have it all sorted correctly on computer, but just be a mess on one drive since uploaded all my photos on the same day. Thanks.
and a timeline to quickly find photos by date,like carousel of dropbox

Beside of Photos, Album and Tags, should have "Places" option.
Should integrate with Bing Maps Places and use geotag to organize photos automatically.
If I go to Times Square, should say Times Square. If I go to Zoo, should say zoo, if I have pic from Burger King...

Also, please make sure when we share photos with friends, there's an easy way for them to get the "photos on a map" experience as well.

I would like to see my Windows Photo Gallery Geotags on OneDrive. It would be nice if OneDrive could extend this feature a bit, by allowing to add GeoTags as well and editing the map location.
How about using location names from a service like Fourquare? Flick has a nice trick in which if you add a special tag such as foursquare:venue=416dc180f964a5209b1d1fe3 it adds the location information from Foursquare (In this case it is the Space Neddle in Seattle).
Also, writting back this information to the original file XMP is a must.

Please retain the geotag that I placed in Windows Live Photo and have one drive make it searchable.

Actually bring all the storyteller features to OneDrive including creating an automated video clip of the photos you took for that event with the option to edit the video by add or removing images and changing the music track.
