A research project downloaded a bunch of pictures of cats, and put the photos on a map by using the GPS metadata.
John McAfee was in for a surprise when he chose to boast his freedom from chasing authorities via a popular blog reporter. Not only was the photo of terrible quality and with an object blocking part of the scene, but also the unassuming reporter posted a photo which included the exact GPS location of McAfee, and within a short time he was in custody. To view the GPS metadata, save the photo to your iPhone or iPad, and open the photo from within the Photo Investigator app.
