This tool lets you find the location of an image using shadows

Have you seen this tool where you can figure out the location of a photo based on the shadow? It’s amazing. (video explainer)

Although for it to work, you also need to know the exact time the photo was taken.

What if you know the exact location of a photo, like a MLB stadium? Let’s say you have an old photo taken in Wrigley Field, and you want to know the date. Can you take the length and direction of the shadow, the location of the photo, and figure out the date?

Although, most MLB games are now night games, so no shadows. And photos in baseball cards don’t show the shadow, they are cropped.
