Though often overlooked, most Trimble data collectors have the built-in ability to take quality photographs in the field. This can be extremely valuable for documenting survey data, saving time and increasing productivity by reducing the need for elaborate field notes and descriptions.
In this installment, we will look at how to use the onboard camera in the TSC7 data collector. We’ll also see how these photos can be linked to field measurements made using Trimble Access. In a future post, we will go over how the photos can be imported and viewed in a TBC project, and even included in special exports and deliverables such as Google Earth KMZ files.
