In the technical field it is important to document the works through photographic reports and geo-locate them on the map. The technology we have today allows you to easily get your position in real time. With few economic resources can get smartphones, tablets and PCs, equipped with GPS. Of course in the case of investigations and topographic measurements, the tools available offer all this, but at a high price.
The importance of having the correct position in the workplace available
In the professional field, as mentioned above, more and more relies on geo-location services. But the request to combine geographical position, photographic information and managerial aspect of the job makes it everything more difficult for the professional. The photographic report is an indispensable element for the preparation of the final relation, as well as the geographical position of the intervention under study.
Therefore, it is necessary to create services and meet the needs of professionals, quickly and easily.
Examples of the use of photographic reports conjugated to the geographical position
Going into detail, just imagine being on a yard of any nature and in drawing up ayard report, you also need to attach a photographic report: the goal is to make sure, of course, that the reader who reads the report has the conception of where the interventions are located.
As well as, in the case of investigations (geotechnical, geophysical etc …) or the analysis of interventions: the exact position of the investigation or, in the case of describing and justifying the type of technical analysis, the exact position described, combined with the photographic report becomes essential in the preparation of the report or, even, condition the design choices based on the morphology surrounding the point of intervention.
The management aspect
To the two variables (photographic report and geographical position), a third one must be added: document management and project organization. In fact, just think of the time with which we have to access the information collected in the field: in addition to not having to lose the data in the acquisition on site, you must organize it efficiently, quickly and easily
The risk of not having an efficient management method is that of losing the work done (just think of accidental deletion of files due to bad cataloging) or simply accessing the desired data in a long times.
GeoPix is an application for tablet or smartphone mobile devices with an Android operating system developed specifically for geologists, engineers and technicians in general, which allows you to create geolocated photographic documentation in the cloud.
It consists of:
- Mobile application;
- A web dashboard from which the user can view geolocated photos.
