They have the location already embedded from any phone or camera with GPS.
While the creators of the PNG format anticipated that metadata should be embedded with images, by the provision of allowing a single file to consist of several "chunks", there is yet no standard for embedding metadata in PNG image files. Specifically, PNG does not support more or less establishes tagsets such as EXIF, IPTC or DC.

What would they use a database of searchable facial recognition for? Imagine this. Say there is a gov. sponsored assassination of some controversial political figure and they really need a patsy. Within 4 hours suddenly your face is all over TV accused of the act. HOW did this happen!?!?! Simple. Load the security tape from across the street from 15 mins before the act. Plug the faces into your Facebook supplied database search engine. More than likely powered by... you guessed it... Google. Now you have the personalities and habits of everyone that was in the vicinity moments before it all went down. And guess what, you just so happened to walk directly in front of that security camera on your way to the Starbucks. When you got there you popped open your laptop, logged onto ATS, and did a little ranting about said political figure while sipping your latte. Harmless right?
