Geo Coding photgraghs

Why do the nationals feel they need geocoding on pics?

Here is yet another new requirement coming down the pipeline and guess how much we will be compensated for this additional requirement?

I totally agree. really dont want to buy another dam camera. I love the nikon coolpix aw100. now it looks like these are the choices.

Geocoding is the process of collecting the latitude and longitude. Most mobile devices and tablets have the ability to geocode photographs. Newer cameras also possess this capability; some of which include:

Samsung WB800F Smart Digital Camera
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10
Nikon Coolpix P6000
Canon PowerShot S110
Panasonic Lumix DMC-Ts5 Shock and Waterproof

I just bought a new camera and I paid a good bit for it. The zoom feature on this camera is good enough to take pics of a roof from the ground. This is useful if we have already turned in bids and are just doing a PCR or something. I would guess my cam may have this feature built into it? The issue however is that they expect us to do yet one more thing with no additional compensation.

Recently we have been asked to pay for:

Background checks
Cost estimators
New Camera's

That is just off the top of my head.

Just one more reason to get out and not get into this business, spend more money to make less!!
The powers that be in this industry are truly out of control now.
One more requirement to confuse the cube jockeys and make your life miserable.

Samsung WB800F Smart Digital Camera -$221.00
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10- $350.00
Nikon Coolpix P6000- $100.00 not sure the $100.00 one offers the coding?
Canon PowerShot S110- $250.00
Panasonic Lumix DMC-Ts5 Shock and Waterproof-$300.00

So how many of these camera's do you think offer a 640X480 resolution?

How many times have you guys ruined a camera in the field? At $300.00 a pop that is going to hurt.

I wouldn't do it.

Unless they go back to paying $25 to $50 a photo package.

I believe HUD still pays for this, but you aint getting that money.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

they are covering their ass

It is a way for them to make sure you went there and did the work ! I went through this with the old FAS. It was a cluster and it did cause some problems as mentioned when as I expeirenced too you dont have coverage in the hills of nowhere land. The GPS coordination is off of cell towers and is good to 1500 FT. Who are the nationals other than AFAS that are requiring this ?? Last I was aware of SG was not requiring this.

I about fell over dead. I have not looked at all of them but it looks like most have a retractable lens.

Plus having to buy lots of spare batteries.

Why the hell do they need this anyway? But you still need street signs and addresses?

It wouldn't surprise me if the industry started moving towards tablets. Cable, satellite and telecommunications companies are already using them to complete work orders. GPS coding, locations and work orders are all pumped through prioritized software programs and completed in real time using a cloud. It would eliminate a lot of middle and lower management companies, leaving a higher profit at the top.
