adding lat ,lng and heading to scenes

I would like to add lat, lng and heading attributes to each scenes of a tour consisting of many panos.
I can have this data either:
1) on metadata of each jpeg pano
2) or on a separate file or on <data> in tour.xml

I would like to do that not by manually adding the attributes.
I suppose I have 1) to change something in config file (preferred) and/or 2) coding some action on tour.xml but I do not know how.

Any ideas, hints, suggestions on how to proceed?

Thank you very much for any help.
Best regards,

I did not have images with GPS data and I did not realised that Krpano stores lat and lng on <scene> where I can access for custom actions which is what I need.
I put GPS data on images via Exiftool. I can not find a tag for HEADING. I tried GPSImgDirection and GPSDestBearing but the heading attribute on <scene> in the tour.xml remains unchanged.

Is the heading attribute in <scene> set from any EXIF data? which?

Thank you.

Solved by trying.
The heading attribute in <scene> is set by GPSImgDirection in EXIF data: it works when settting GPSImgDirection in degree with decimal.

But the view.hlookat is also set as the heading which I do not want.

I would like to have view.hlookat at 0.0, i.e. where the stirched pano is centered. Then I will use heading (from gps device when taking the picture) to set the radar and the compass.
I set
prealignheading=false in config file but that does not seem to work.

Can someone suggest a way to avoid the view.hlookat to be set as the heading from Exif data?

Thank you in advance.
