Fulcrum records EXIF metadata as part of the photo collection process, including geotags for location and other details. When browsing your data in Fulcrum’s record editor view, if you click on a thumbnail of an image you will be taken to an image viewer for that photo field. 

This will display a quick overlay showing the specific kind of photo metadata it's using:

Photos in Fulcrum are geotagged independently of the record’s location. If you have many photos attached to a single record that represents something larger (like an entire plot of land), but each photo is taken while walking around the site, you’ll be able to see that photo’s location overlaid with the record’s location (red ring is the photo, blue ring is the record). This is useful for tracking down as much detail as possible about your field-collected data.

If you choose the option to include photos when running an export, you’ll also get a separate data file containing the full metadata table for each photo.
