Geotagged Photos in GeoPDF
Way back in 2006, Patrick and crew developed a really cool pilot project for automatically adding geotagged photographs to a GeoPDF. The idea was to have someone in the field drive around and take photographs of any target area with a Ricoh Digital Camera. These cameras have a built in GPS which allows for automatic geotagging. You are also able to take it to the next level by using the camera to record an audio clip. Pretty cool indeed!!! Here is the workflow:
1. Create a base map to work with. This can be anything from a high resolution image to a simple vector layer that is exported to GeoPDF.
GeoPDF and maintain the spatial integrity of the data.
4. You will now see that each photo is adding to both the map space as well as a separate page in the table of contents. You can browse to each image by selecting it in the map or by clicking on it in the table of contents.
