Step 1) Transfer the photos to your computer.
If you took them with a phone, you can email them to yourself, or if they were taken with a digital camera, you'll need to use a SIM card or transfer cable. If the device you took the photos with records the location of the photo (most phones do this), make sure you use a transfer method that retains that data.
*Note: You will need to manually add photopoint numbers and photo descriptions if you use this process.
Step 2) Create a Site Visit in Landscape (if it hasn't already been created).
Log in to Landscape on your desktop computer. Navigate to the correct Stewardship Site and go to the 'Work' tab. Click on the (+) button next to 'Site Visits' to create a new Site Visit. Fill out the Site Visit information.
Step 3: Navigate to the correct layer
To load the photos into the final report, they will need to be attached to the Site Visit Geography. Click on the layers button on the map (1), then click on the three dots next to 'Site Visit Points' (2), and select 'Edit Layer' (3).
Step 4(a) - for geotagged photos:
Click on the import features () button that appears on the edit toolbar, then select 'One or more geotagged photos'. Click 'Choose Files'.
Choose the correct files from your computer. You can add multiple photos at once by selecting multiple photos (use the 'shift' key to select multiple files at once).
Click 'OK'. The photos will upload and appear on your map. In this case the three photos were loaded into one photopoint since they were all taken from the same location. Click the thumbs up to save your edits.
After you've saved the edits, you can click on the point to review the photos and add photo captions. A reminder: there are two places to add descriptions. One is to the photo point, which is what you see when you click on a point, and the other is to the photos themselves, which you can edit when you click on a photo thumbnail. Make sure the place you add a description is compatible with your final report template (by default this will be the photo description and not the photopoint description).
4(b) - For non-geotagged photos:
Click on the icon on the toolbar, then click on the map where you want to create the photo points. You can add many different photo points, or load all your photos into one if you'd like. Click the thumbs up to save your edits, or the thumbs down to cancel and start over.
After you've saved your edits, click on a point and then click on the (+) button next to 'Photos' to add a photo.
Select the correct photo from your computer (you can only add one at a time) and click 'Open'.
Once the photo is attached to the photo point, you can add a description by clicking on the thumbnail and updating the photo description. A reminder: there are two places to add descriptions. One is to the photo point, which is what you see when you click on a point, and the other is to the photos themselves, which you can edit when you click on a photo thumbnail. Make sure the place you add a description is compatible with your final report template.
Step 5: Download the Landscape Mobile App!
The Landscape Mobile App streamlines this process, so that you can take photos in the field and sync them directly with your Landscape account automatically. You can also fill out custom forms, add issues, and navigate the property, all without cell signal.
