Earth's Largest Land Surveyor Community
I recently added a new way for you to snapshot the location of your next jobsite inside the Mobile Rover, called Surveyor's Polaroid. How this works is like this: Next time you are on a jobsite, fire up your mobile device and head to this page on the Mobile Rover. Share your location (don't worry,it is not stored) and it will generate a simple Google Street View image of the geolocation you are presently at.
Below is a screencapture of where I was when I built and tested the app and is merely meant as an example. Your Street View will obviously be different.
After generating your present location, you can either take a screencapture of the image or save the image to your phone/cloud space.
I can think of a number of ways this might be useful such as providing evidence that you were actually on the site, keeping a log of all the jobsites you work or simply seeing if the address you were sent to is the address you are at.
I hope you enjoy playing around with this, but even moreso I hope you find a way to work this into your survey work and increase your productivity somehow. Let me know what you think!
