Depending on the user’s requirements, GPS coordinates can be stored and/or converted into a variety of common formats including LAT/LONG, MGRS, decimal degrees, UTM, and State Plane. GeoMapr also records GPS track-logs and compass heading via its built-in electronic compass.
Recording Object Location:
Laser range finders may be connected to the GeoMapr module via Bluetooth or cable connection to record distance and GPS coordinates of objects. This is done by combining the laser range finder’s data with GPS positional data to automatically calculate the location of an ‘object’ within a photograph.
GeoMapr supports up to 20 attribute fields for each image called ‘memos’ which are used to tag photographs with relevant information such as photographer’s name, operation ID, operation type, unit ID, and so on. This information, along with GPS coordinates, date and time, are automatically stored as metadata in each image file. “Memo fields are created and stored within the GeoMapr module before photographs are taken, thereby automating the process of capturing the who, what, when, where and why of each photo,” explained Andy Shannon, Director of Business Development at Geo Tactical Solutions. “Collecting this information not only transforms a photograph into a powerful source of information, it keeps photographs organized by common attributes and simplifies the mapping and reporting process.”
A Selective Availability Anti-spoofing Module (SAASM) is used to allow decryption of precision GPS coordinates in order to obtain accurate GPS readings in a GPS compromised environment. These secure and decrypted GPS signals can be recorded by connecting GeoMapr to a Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR).
GTS offers photo mapping software (PhotoGIS) along with their GPS-enabled camera solutions for mapping, editing and reporting photos collected in the field. With PhotoGIS, digital photographs collected using a GPS-enabled DSLR can be converted into a variety of file formats suitable for popular mapping applications such as ArcGIS, FalconView, GeoSuite, TIGR, and Google Earth.
