Sets the geo data (latitude and longitude and, optionally, the accuracy level) for a photo. Before users may assign location data to a photo they must define who, by default, may view that information. Users can edit this preference at http://www.flickr.com/account/geo/privacy/. If a user has not set this preference, the API method will return an error.
This method requires authentication with 'write' permission.
Note: This method requires an HTTP POST request.
- Your API application key. See here for more details.
- The id of the photo to set location data for.
- The latitude whose valid range is -90 to 90. Anything more than 6 decimal places will be truncated.
- The longitude whose valid range is -180 to 180. Anything more than 6 decimal places will be truncated.
- Recorded accuracy level of the location information. World level is 1, Country is ~3, Region ~6, City ~11, Street ~16. Current range is 1-16. Defaults to 16 if not specified.
- Context is a numeric value representing the photo's geotagginess beyond latitude and longitude. For example, you may wish to indicate that a photo was taken "indoors" or "outdoors".
The current list of context IDs is :

- 2, outdoors.
The default context for geotagged photos is 0, or "not defined"
