UPDATE: Photos is no longer in beta. Pro subscription is required.
From version 6.0 photos can be captured and linked to features.
This is a ‘Pro feature’ provided as BETA functionality in version 6.0, please note that future versions will require Pro features to be activated via an in-app purchase.
To link photos to features you will first need to define an ‘ID field’ for the target layer. To do this Open the target Projects settings, and navigate to the target layers settings.
‘ID field’ attributes are used in the naming of the photos to enable easy linking or GIS software hyperlink creation after export from iGIS.
Photos can be captured and linked to existing or newly created features:
– To add photos to an existing feature, single tap the feature in the map window to display its attributes. Select Edit, Scroll down to the end of the attribute list and select Photos.
– To add photos at the time of feature creation, In edit mode, after the features geometry has been defined, select commit to bring up the attribute window, Scroll down to the end of the attribute list and select Photos.
On USB export from iGIS linked images are exported to a directory beside your exported shapefile data.
The naming conventions for images captured in iGIS are;
<shapefile name>-<iGIS ID Field value>-<Image number for feature>.jpg
The process of setting up hyperlinks to these images is different depending on which GIS software you use.
The below linked ESRI article describes how to setup dynamic and field based hyperlinks in ArcGIS.
