Imagine all you want to do is to add points of interest, for example by using
OSMtracker on Android, but you don't want to waste battery power by using the
gps all the time to create a track of an area which is already mapped.
As a result you'd have a photo with the coordinates saved in the exif tags.
Loading this into merkaartor would be useful for me - I'd get a photo which
points to a node, and I'd be able to tag the node according to the information
from the photo.
My preferred work flow would be: Import a lot of photos, nodes are created more
or less automatically (I think it would be nice to be able to choose for which
photos a node should be created), and a list of images is presented to work with.
