Cedar Breaks National Monument, Utah

  • The highest point = 10,662 feet

  • Giant amphitheater, spans some three miles and is more than 2,000 feet deep

The project

The Project

  • Peg Simons, Volunteer In Park:

    • GPS’ed the fence line

    • GPS’ed & photo-documented potential problem areas

  • Integration of digital photos with GPS points


Link photos with table records

Why did we choose the method of embedding photos in a geodatabase

Why did we choose the method of embedding photos in a geodatabase?

  • No addition software or extensions required, easy sharing

  • Provided with data, we were not part of the field process

  • One Image per Point

  • Option of managing by

    the geodatabase

Decision time managed vs not managed

Decision Time…Managed vs. Not Managed


Managed by the geodatabase sounds good right

Managed by the Geodatabase: Sounds Good, Right?

  • Benefits:

    • No further need for image management

    • Automatically moves photos with spatial data

  • Downsides:

    • Unstable

    • Large file size

    • Always providing photos with the spatial data

  • Recommendation: Do not have the geodatabase manage the photos.
