FieldGenius 6 Photo Notes

Post by andye » Wed Feb 24, 2016 4:37 pm

Folks,I'm using FG 6 on a Nautiz PDA and want to make use of Photo and voice notes.

I've managed to record a photo for a couple of points. However the outputs are a little weak.

This is the TEXT file export

1,X1,Y1,Z1,IMAGE 1:Picture 1
2,X2,Y2,Z2,IMAGE 2:Picture 2

"IMAGE 1" is the typed Note. However the value following the colon "Picture 1" doesn't really serve the purpose as the actual image file created is 1.jpg.

In another system such as a GIS the literal file name of the image 1.jpg is immediately usable.

As it stands there's a bit of intermediate processing to get a consuming system to recognise the image 1.jpg file is associated with a certain record.

Are there any settings or export formats that provide a somewhat more directly usable output?

regards
Andrew

Hi Andrew,
The filename always uses the point ID - so the photo for point "123" is called "123.jpg", etc.

Thanks Brian.

I was able to deduce that much.

I was hoping that one of the outputs would literally export "123.jpg" in its entirety.

As I mentioned, rather than just importing a file and using it directly I'll need to write some processing code to make it usable.
