LQM GIS web-bytes: Viewing your Site Photographs

Part of the LQM series of recorded demos using the free and open source QGIS software developed primarily for contaminated land practitioners.

Learn how to view site walkover, investigation and remediation photographic records within your QGIS project. Help your project team or client visualise the site and design future phases of investigation or demonstrate compliance.

This short (12 minute) QGIS demonstration clearly shows you how to add your geotagged photographs, efficiently add additional meta-data and style the newly created vector layer to show the direction you were facing when you took the image and click through and zoom into the geolocated images.
