Flexible. Robust. Unrivaled.
These days there are tremendous differences between compact cameras. RICOH clearly positions the G700SE on the professional end of the large range.
The G700SE is the 3rd gerneration of GPS cameras RICOH has built. And it is by far the best model so far. Another milestone in digital Photo Asset Management has been reached. Not only does it come with GPS and Compass. Unrivaled safety features as well as robustness extend the universal use of the product across various industries.
GPS-Compass-Camera RICOH G700SE
Knowing “when” a picture was taken is always important, but how about “where” and “in which direction”? GPS coordinates in the EXIF-header of the image can help to attach images related to their location. Questions like “Where was this picture taken?” as well as “I know someone took pictures of this site, where are they?” can be easily answered once location information is stored with each picture.
The G700SE comes with a GPS-Compass device. An horizontal accuracy of +/- 10ft enable precise positioning and gapless documentation of any situation possible. The integrated compass has an accuracy of +/- 3 degrees.
For surveying accuracy, you can connect the RICOH G700SE to external GPS or laser range finder devices via Bluetooth.
Through an elegant and compact design combined with a net weight of 286g. With the GPS attached, the G700SE satisfies IP64 dust and water resistance performance standards and shock resistance standards for a 1.2 m drop. It even resists the removal of stains with ethanol- and chlorine-acids. Additionally the waterproof body prevents the camera from water and moisture infiltration.
In order to proof who took which photo where and when, the new GPS + Compass Camera RICOH G700SE comes with brand new safety features. Through a password protection, several camera functions can be protected granting only permitted users access to these functions. The option to use the new SD-WORM memory-cards (write once read many), protects images from being edited or deleted.
Internal Bluetooth® and wireless LAN functions
Storing and processing images on business servers, distribution information within a few images, no matter from where - wouldn’t this be nice. It is.
Adding text attribution
The Memo-function of the G700SE extends the image information through the additional option of adding additional attribute information (audio, text, etc.) in the field. A choice of 99 user-defined text-attributes organizable in 10 categories can be stored in each image. Using alta4’s software to extract that information, adds great value to the workflow: images can later be renamed or moved to folders based on the information entered in the field.
alta4 Software Solution
Seamless. Intuitive. Powerful.
It is not just about storing images. It is about efficiency, time, employee productivity and profits. To create data is one part, to enable efficient access and distribute information to the right interest and target groups, is another. Once you start quantifying the cost of your present photo capturing and photo management, you will quickly find that a good photo management system with powerful spatial search capabilities is well worth the investment. The ROI (Return On Investment) comes quickly.
alta4 software solutions offer a broad variety of functions. Starting with ExifExtractor for the non-GIS user and moving to PhotoMapper for seamless integration into your ArcGIS environment: deskop and server, enhancing the workflows and the productivity of Individual employees to large teams and the enterprise.
ExifExtractor offers the ability to read-out EXIF- information and implement these gathered information for an efficient photo management. This is an efficient standalone tool for all users without ArcGIS applications. It offers a broad range of export formats like csv, xml, kml to enable the integration in Google Earth, CAD-file systems and GIS applications. An additional feature is the PDF-export function, which delivers clear and compact information’s about chosen photo-collections in a well structured PDF-report.
PhotoMapper Desktop 10 offers broad based functionali ty to comfort and increase the Photomanagement process within ArcGIS applications. Drag&Drop interfaces allow a comfortable use in ArcMap. An automated position is ensured through the available GPS data captured in the EXIF-header of the chosen images. In case of missing GPS-coordinates, these can be added manually through the Drag&Drop functionality. For different purposes, PDF files can easily be created in order to give an overview of the chosen photos and their relevant EXIF-data.
PhotoMapper Server efficiently increases ArcGIS Server advantages PhotoMapper with an improved photo- management. The fully automated process of transfer, storage, distribution to the person or department in charge, up to storing the captured images in photo collections improves the overall workflow. Especially large scale organizations and complex enterprises gain great profit from an increased workflow efficiency through PhotoMapper Server, which enables an easy-to-handle file structure, that increases the ease of access throughout the whole enterprise.
