    iPhoto have a "Places" feature where all of my geotagged photos are shown as pins on a map. Then clicking on the pins show the geotagged photos. Apple's new Photo app doesn't have that feature anymore. Does anyone here know of an app that replicates that feature for OSX?

    Not that I've seen. Please take a moment to ask Apple to restore the map, and the ability to add/edit location info., in Photos:

    Agreed! I've been having the same issue and have submitted feedback to Apple urging them to restore this feature. I definitely miss it too and am interested in any workarounds that anyone finds in the meantime...

    Photos application does display maps

    I can view all of my geocoded photographs on a map in Photos, without any problems. In the Photos view you will see your photographs displayed as 'Moments', if you see a location name(s) and a grey right facing '>' in the moment title, you can click either the title or the '>' character and a map will open that displays the photos in groups on a map. This works in IOS and MAC OS X versions.

    However, I have not yet discovered a way of editing or adding missing geocode information, within the photos app, as you could in iPhoto. No way to automatically add titles with incremental numbers either, at least not that I can find.

    Adobe Lightroom can do this. But that may be taking an atom bomb to anthill type of situation.

    I know it have something similar, but it's not in the Apple style where pins are used to represent the geotagged photos.

    Not pins no, but flags. This isn't my library but just one I found on google images.

    Each orange flag/pin/icon etc represents a location, and like iPhoto the more you zoom on an area the more detailed locations the pins go to.

    Yes, Photo Geolocation from the Mac App Store: Photo Geolocation. Only $2.

    Yes, this works for a single group. But the OP wants to see all the photos at once. This method only shows the photos in the selected group.

    This may be what I'm looking for. Are you the author of this app? I notice you've been promoting this app...

    Since there is no way to trial your app, does your app mimic all of iPhoto's Places feature? Possible to show all geotagged pictures JPEGS or even RAWs in the global map view? Clicking on the pins will cause the pin to expand and show where the images are on the map? I love Apple's implementation in iPhoto.

    Yes, I am the author of this app -- see my public profile.

    I doubt the app mimics all of iPhoto's Places feature (I haven't used iPhoto for a long time so not sure). Yes, it shows all JPEG and RAW photos on the map. Clicking on a pin shows location info for the photo as well as selecting the photo in the list of photos. Just like the app screenshots at the Mac App Store.

    Do you have access to iPhoto? Can you try to confirm the similarities and differences between your app and iPhoto's Places?

    No, I don't have iPhoto anymore. I think your best bet is to view the screenshots at the Mac App Store and see if it's what you want.
