Hi,

According to the documentation (https://doc.arcgis.com/en/quickcapture/help/editproject.htm) the mobile devices azimuth, pitch and roll are being recorded.  Do they only record when taking a picture, or are they also recorded when just taking a point?

Also, where are these being recorded?  I am messing around, but can't seem to access these attributes anywhere.

Is there a way to assign them to a specific attribute in your feature?

Thanks!

Hi Brian

These are exposed as device variables, so you can assign them to any field that you like (as long as it is the right field type). Go here for more info: 

https://doc.arcgis.com/en/quickcapture/help/editproject.htm#ESRI_SECTION1_623F8C96724944728C33991B95...

The device variables to use are: azimuth, pitch and roll and these represent the angles of the device when the project button was pressed, not when the photo was taken. If you want angles for the camera (when the photo was taken) then you can use: camHeading, camPitch and camRoll.

They are all selectable in the designer when you update your project fields in the data tab. 

Thanks

John

Hi John.  I see it now when looking at a field with "Decimal" type.

Thanks!
