acquired satellites and
GPS coordinates
Implementing this Solution
• Use as a single unit solution using
built-in GPS or in conjunction with
external GPS devices via bluetooth
• For greater precision of accuracy,
the 500SE can receive NMEA data
wirelessly from Bluetooth enabled GPS
devices

Upload to PC
Images with data are
plotted by location using
ESRI software applications
• Sends images, or file names of
images, wirelessly to a Bluetooth
enabled PDA
• For additional telemetry, such as
laser range finders, the 500SE is able
to support two Bluetooth devices
simultaneously
The Geo-Imaging Solution simplifies your world by integrating GPS technology
directly into the camera to Geo-code images as they are captured
Target Markets & Applications
Who Should Use the Geo-Imaging Camera Solution
• Organizations with Geographical Information Systems (GIS) workflows involving images
Benefits
• Simplifies workflow and overcomes burdens of traditional methods
Using the Geo-Imaging Camera Solution
• Government/Defense
• Construction
• Law enforcement
• Disaster assistance
• Transportation
• Geo-codes images as they are captured
• Automatically stores GPS coordinates in the image EXIF header
• Additional meta-data can be associated with captured images through a user-configurable
menu system on the camera
• Allows image imprinting with GPS coordinates and any associated data
• Upload images, coordinates and captured data directly from the camera
• Geo-coded images can be sent to a PC running ArcMap® where a plug-in tool extracts GPS
data from images and generates standard ESRI “shape” layer files
• Images plus associated meta data are automatically linked to mapped points based on their
GPS location

Data-Imaging
Camera Solution Relates Images to Barcodes
Pictures play an important role in many barcode-based workflows. Unfortunately the
devices available today for scanning barcodes do not accommodate the needs of
workflows that require detailed pictures of the objects that the barcode relates to.
By integrating a barcode scanning device with a high-resolution digital camera, the
problems of associating the image of an object with its related barcode documents
are overcome.

Target Markets & Applications
• Vehicle inspections
World’s first integrated barcode-enabled digital camera associates images to
barcodes and automates upload and integration of pictures and data
• Freight claims
• Parts inventory
• Retail maintenance
Who Should Use the Data-Imaging Camera Solution
• Human identification
• Organizations whose information workflows involve pictures as well as barcode information
• Manufacturing
Benefits
• Faster workflow completion and significantly reduced opportunities for human error
• Immediate availability of acquired images and associated data
• Eliminates manual processes to separately scan barcoded forms, download pictures from a
memory device and associate the files
• Eliminates time and expense of shipping physical materials to the home office for processing
Using the Data-Imaging Camera Solution
• Automatic association of images to barcodes - simply scan a bar code with the camera then
take a picture
Complementary Products
• Additional meta-data can be associated with captured images through a user-configurable
menu system on the camera (date and time are also recorded)
eCabinet for electronic file storage
• Scanned barcode and user-entered data are stored in the image EXIF header
• Once uploaded to a PC or server, the images can be automatically integrated with databases
and associated with documents based on their barcode or entered data
