As seen in Wikipedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geotagging – Geo-Tagging is:
The process of adding geographical identification metadata to various media such as photographs, video, websites, or RSS feeds and is a form of geospatial metadata. These data usually consist of latitude and longitude coordinates, though they can also include altitude, bearing, distance, accuracy data, and place names.
