Overview of taking a photo
In ArcPad, there are two methods to take a photo with the digital camera connected to your mobile device:
- By using the Camera tools located on the QuickCapture toolbar. These Camera tools are used to take standalone photos, that is, photos which are not associated with a feature. You can choose to take a photo that has embedded GPS coordinates, or a photo that you manually place on your map.
- By using the Camera tool located on the Picture page of the Feature Properties dialog box. This Camera tool is used to take a photo which is associated with a feature. The photo filename is stored as an attribute in the selected field of the feature.
When activated, each of the Camera tools open the same dialog box for interacting with your digital camera and for taking the photos.The camera dialog box will vary according to the camera driver selected in the ArcPad Options.
