GPS co-ordinates are not supported (AFAIK), the location field is for you to type in a place/country i.e. London, United Kingdom

They are (or were; I no longer have a GPS-equipped camera).

When I had, my uploads had the AIM location filed populated automatically. Could you be stripping out the metadata on export?

At one time when you filled in a location it automatically threw up Google Maps showing the location but that stopped when Google hiked up the price for access.  Maybe this is why it doesn't work anymore.

You're right.

I've just uploaded one of my old GPS-annotated images. I double-checked that the LR export had the GPS in the metadata. I have 5* QC, so it went straight through to AIM.

The location field is empty.

Thanks to all. The Alamy info say somewhere that it is automatic.
