Export photos through Report

Report option displays all attribute data together with photos in the form of the Report. The Report can be saved locally on the computer as an HTML file, which will automatically add a separate folder with the collected photos from that particular project.

Generating and saving a report can be done with a few simple steps explained in the previous chapter. 

Export photos from the File Manager

File Manager is used for storing and managing data in the cloud, including your media files. It can be accessed only in the Map Editor trough Tools tab.

All media files, including photos that are either collected through MDC or uploaded directly in your account can be accessed and downloaded from the File Manager to your computer.

The maximum number of downloaded files for this option is 50. If you have a large amount of data, the Secure File Transfer Protocol is a quicker way to download or upload files including photos.

All the MDC collected photos are automatically stored in File Manager in the ‘uploads’ folder.
