Does not correctly display degree (°) sign in GPS latitude/longitude

Post by dma_k »

Dear all,

I have XnView v2.48. It displays EXIF metainformation this way:
xnview_gps.png
exiftool decodes it just fine:

Code: Select all

[Composite]     GPS Latitude                    : 45 deg 56' 7.86" N
[Composite]     GPS Longitude                   : 8 deg 34' 31.23" E
[Composite]     GPS Position                    : 45 deg 56' 7.86" N, 8 deg 34' 31.23" E
JPEG sample is attached.

Feature request: Would be nice if XnView could generate and display a link to Google Maps like https://www.google.com/maps/place/46°03 ... 40'04.8"E/ based on GPS position.

This is very strange / unusual. I have downloaded sample.jpg and GPS information is there. The file has size 2814 bytes and MD5 19f5d8932861f79b6f18f37673faa5e5. I have posted the file to Dropbox just in case. Exiftool output is the following:

I have tested on another Windows 10 EN x64 with English setting, and there is no issue (degree is displayed correctly). I don't know where exactly to look at, because I suppose that non-console applications should be Unicode, so this setting for non-Unicode programs should not affect them. I'll try to keep an eye on this issue further, but for sure it varies from one setup to another...

I just noticed that on "problematic" Windows all Cyrillic characters in file view are displayed incorrectly, however they are displayed correctly in tree view.
Here is view for the same shared folder on "problematic" Windows 10:

and correctly working Windows 7:

Probably displaying of Unicode character as two characters in EXIF view and that effect in file view are related.
"Russian" language is set for non-unicode programs on both Windows, so very likely it does not affect the problem.

XnView v2.50.
