        File imageFile = new File(imageFilePath);
        Metadata metadata = ImageMetadataReader.readMetadata(imageFile);
        GpsDirectory gpsDirectory = metadata.getFirstDirectoryOfType(GpsDirectory.class);
        if (gpsDirectory != null && gpsDirectory.getGeoLocation() != null) {
            Double latitude = gpsDirectory.getGeoLocation().getLatitude();
            Double longitude = gpsDirectory.getGeoLocation().getLongitude();
            System.out.println("Latitude: " + latitude);
            System.out.println("Longitude: " + longitude);
        } else {
