[done] Exporting placemark data - Include all photos attached

Post by DolphinPC » Sat Apr 30, 2022 2:09 pm

Hi,

I am using exported data from AQ in custom software that create database record for each way-point. Problem is exported .CSV only include first photo in Picture Waypoint, not all. Need names of all files.

Possible with different format?


Thank you

Hi,

Yes you're right, right now only the first picture name is exported in CSV. I can change this for the next update and put all picture names.

Right now:
- Using the KMZ format, all pictures are exported;
- Using the GPX format, picture names can be exported if you add this user setting: "landmarks.features.offlinelandmarks.formats.gpx.export_pictures=1"

Hi,

Thank you very much for your quick response. If I may make more recommendation.

KMZ packages images with directory such as: Test.KMZ\files\inc_1.jpg
But would be ideal to have original filename from device and not rename inc_1, inc_2, inc_3.....

Next item. KMZ includes less information compared to CSV. No keyword field in KMZ. Or comment (not sure about comment).
Would be ideal for KMZ to include all info. Currently my application require 2 exports from AQ for getting complete data of waypoints.

Thank you very much

I've published a new beta version (2.3.1c) with the following changes:
- CSV exports all pictures names, not only the first one;
- KMZ exports the keywords for waypoints, and keep the original picture names (almost).

Hi,

I received the update beta. Thank you once again.

I face new issue regarding the CSV output. The file names are not exact match to device files.

Example:
On device: 2022-05-03 17.41.45.JPG
in CSV File: 2022-05-03_17-36-27.JPG

This prevents my application with ability to parse-match associated files. CSV file name is arbitrary??
Parsing CSV is much simpler than the KMZ so I hope we can find solution to get filenames to match correct from device to csv output.

Thoughts?


Thank you very much

Hi again,
I've double checked and the CSV exporter does use the exact picture names.
When you take a picture from the app, it should have this format: "yyyy-MM-dd_HH-mm-ss", so like you get in the CSV file: "2022-05-03_17-36-27.JPG".
You can display the exact names of picture waypoints from the waypoints details.

Hi,

One thing I notice is there way to change default save location for camera placemark?

I would prefer camera placemark image taken to go inside camera roll so that gets automatically backed up with my dropbox



Thank you

You can try to use this user setting:

Code: Select all

core.pictures.use_application_folder=false
However it does only work on some devices (some brands seems to not allow this).
