​Have your photo name match your feature ID automatically in TerraSync


Did you know you can have your photo name be the same name as the feature ID? Say you collect fi re hydrants and want the photo name to be the same as the hydrant ID. It’s now possible!

• In the Data Dictionary Editor, create your feature point and attributes including the one that will contain the desired photo name (HydrantID in this example).

• Once the attributes are created, edit the feature.

• On the default setting tab, there will be an Image Name Basis dropdown on the bottom. Choose which attribute you want as the photo name.

• When you collect a photo in the field, the file name will automatically be the HydrantID with an _A for the first picture, _B for the second picture etc., along with a jpg extension.
