Could you please take a look at this discussion Lightroom Classic: Improve control over reverse-geocoded Location metadata | Photoshop Family Customer Community and let us know if that helps?
Thank you! This is very much the same as I was asking about. I couldn't see anything about deleting these tags, only editing them, but it seems like I am not alone in being a bit frustrated about this.
You can stop LR from doing the address lookup on new photos by unchecking the option Catalog Settings > Metadata > Look Up City, State And Country Of GPS Coordinates To Provide Address Suggestions.
To clear the address suggestion from existing photos after unchecking that option:
1. Define two new metadata presets:
2. In Library, select all the desired photos.
3. In the Metadata panel, select Preset: Dummy Location.
4. In the Metadata panel, select Preset: Empty Location.
Note that a buglet in the Metadata panel might show the address suggestions again after step 4. Select a different photo and then come back to the current photo, and the location fields should be cleared.
This is almost exactly what I tried first. Except the dummy location preset. And that made the trick!
Thank you very much!
Glad you got it sorted. LR's address suggestions are not well-designed.
