Photo Record Tool
BMCA have developed a unique Photo Record Tool providing significant advantages for Project Visual Recording. This enables virtual site visits from a desktop or anywhere with an internet connection and the potential to resolve issues without the need to visit site. The tool provides for storage, reference and use of metadata enhanced photos including GPS coordinates, date of image, angle of view and tagging of images to allow for filtering. This metadata can be used through the search function to display photos of particular interest based on their location, date, and tag. Photos are arranged on a satellite image of the site and may be superimposed to check relative progress or conditions present at different times.
Enables geotagged, time stamped photographs to be overlaid on satellite images and other backcloths
Historical Records – Records site progress over the project life
Accessible – Data base available to project stakeholders via web browser. No special software required.
Virtual Site Visits – Plan, monitor progress and resolve issues remotely
Proven – Intuitive, easy-to-use interface developed following use on over 30 BMCA projects.
Searchable – search functions permit filtering of images by date, location and tag.
Plan Overlays – The location of photos relative to the proposed works may easily be determined through including selected plans for overlay on the aerial photo. A number of different plan overlays may be included depending on the works.
