An Inspection cannot be processed with AeroPoints or other ground control which requires processing as a Survey. As a result of not requiring ground control, Inspections typically process faster than Surveys. 

Required Inputs 

  • 10 or more geotagged JPEG or JPG files with unique names. 

Outputs produced

Selecting photos for upload

After selecting your site and Survey as the dataset type, upload the photo files by dragging and dropping 10 or more geotagged JPEG or JPG files with unique names or using the Dropbox integration to select a connected Dropbox folder.


Before uploading begins, your photos are scanned for conformance with:

  • File type
  • Compatible geotags
  • Unique name (max length 255 characters)

Once the selected files have been validated, a map will be appear with the location of your photos. 

When all photos are displaying as expected, click Next to proceed.
