If you would like to add photos
to your survey: e.g., images of APs, cabling, or other objects of
interest, you can do so by using a video camera integrated into
your laptop or tablet. To configure your video camera, click
=> Camera and Voice Settings in TamoGraph and select the
Camera tab. You can
select the camera you want to use if there is more than one camera,
as well as select the resolution of the photos that will be taken.
Remember that while higher resolutions provide better image
quality, such photos are much larger in size, which means that your
project file might become much larger.
Once you have configured your
camera, you can add photos to a floor plan. To take a photo, click
on the webcam button on the toolbar or press Ctrl +
P. A preview window will
appear. When you are ready to take a shot, press
or click on the preview window.
To cancel, press Esc or click outside the preview window. The
photo that you have taken appears as a small camera icon on the
floor plan. The position of the icon depends on when you took the
you were surveying: You may want to take photos while you are
conducting a survey. The best method is to pause the survey, take a
photo, and resume the survey. In this scenario, the photo icon is
placed at your current location on the floor plan.
you were not surveying: You can take photos while you are
inspecting the facility without conducting a survey at the same
time. In this scenario, the photo icon is placed in the center of
the floor plan image, as the application is not aware of your
current location, unless you have configured a GPS receiver and
your current map has been GPS-calibrated, in which case the photo
icon is placed at your current GPS location on the map.
Regardless of the initial photo
icon position, you can move the icon to any location on the floor
plan by dragging it with the mouse. When you hover the mouse over
the photo icon, you can see a small preview window. To see the full
size photo, click on the preview window. If you do not want to see
photo icons on the floor plan, use the View => Media
Objects menu command to
turn them on or off. To delete a photo, drag it off the floor plan
image or press Del while viewing the full-size
Photos can also be included in
the reports. If the Media Objects
checkbox in the
is checked, your photos will be appended to the report. For each
photo, its location on the floor plan will be indicated.
