Somehow someone I shared my files with was able to find a map with my exact location. Is there a way to turn this off???

Here's a link to the screenshot he sent me:<<removed>>
That link was really helpful - thank you, however, for obvious reasons I've removed it.
So the data for that location is in the photo you shared. Your location tracking settings are obviously turned on on your camera so it is adding that data to the properties of the picture.
Dropbox has just shared the file as you told it to.... that information would be visible however you shared it (email, Dropbox, iCloud etc.)
