Location meta-data not populating when GPS coordinates provided

Lightroom: 7.2

Platform: Mac Mini

macOS: 14.4.1

 

If no GPS data is captured with the photo I have taken, when I provide it in the Info side panel, the City, State, etc are not populated. Not sure exactly when this started, but it used to happen. Now it is not.

 

Screenshot 2024-05-07 at 9.57.53 PM.png

Please let me know if more info is needed. Is there a setting I should turn off/on?

 

Expected result: City, state and Country populated based on GPS coordinates.

Reverse geo-coding (translating lat-long info to location values) happens in the Cloud and works only for synced images. So it’s behaving as expected for Local Storage.

I forgot to mention this is when using Local Files. Is this expected behavior?

Possibly/probably, though we would need Adobe to confirm. But certainly I see the same behaviour as you in local mode, though that is what I would assume would happen. Are you sure it used to happen when using Local mode?

I see that when I import the local file to the cloud the reverse geo-coding takes place and I can see it when I look at the photo in the cloud
