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



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… geodatabase?Managed vs. Not Managed


Managed by the geodatabase sounds good right
Managed by the Geodatabase: Sounds Good, Right? geodatabase?

  • 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.
