Is it possible to use Survey123 (connect) to capture photos the same way that QuickCapture does - so that the photos can be viewed with the Orientated Imagery Widget in Experience Builder?

My understanding is that I am not able to use QuickCapture because I am trying to collect photos of a point feature that is related to a polygon feature layer.

The general idea is that a polygon is set up to represent a construction site.  This project is to try to utilize ArcGIS Online (not in an Enterprise environment) to conduct daily construction site inspections.  The polygon construction site is the parent record.  I have related tables established for daily inspections, quantities, punch list items, and contacts.  I also created a point feature for photos that is related to the construction site polygon.  I assumed that I had to make this a point so that the photo could capture the metadata needed to view in the orientated imagery widget.  Ultimately, I would like to see when, where, direction, etc. of all photos taken at a construction site on a map.

Or am I thinking about this incorrectly?  Do photos from a construction site even need to be related to a parent record?  Is quickcapture still appropriate in this application?  I'm stuck thinking about the best way to set this up so that a project that will ultimately capture many photos is easy for the Project Manager to view and understand these photos.

Any discussion/feed back/ideas is appreciated!

Has anyone ever used AGOL to set up construction site inspections?  @IsmaelChivite

Bringing Oriented Imagery capabilities, similar to what is already available in QuickCapture, is still in our backlog, but not available yet.  From what you describe I do not see why QuickCapture could not do the trick.

You could have your photos automatically be associated (related) with your polygon based on geography. That is, if you take a photo within a construction site, the photo would be related to that construction site. The relate can be done either through a webhook, python script, or arcade function. 

 

Happy to discuss in more detail. Email quickcapture@esri.com to go over the details.

Thank you for your reply @IsmaelChivite .  I will reach out the quickcapture group to discuss more. 

Appreciate it!

Do you have a timeline for adding oriented imagery capabilities into Survey123?

I vote for this also.  I was able to process all my historic photos into Orientated Imagery features but I did have to let it make some assumptions vs the actual Exif info.  Most of our photos are straight terrestrial shots at ground level so it came out ok.
