Adding annotations

Once you decide on a view that you like, you can go ahead and click an image, either from your image list below or directly on the map. An image viewer window will open beside the map viewer:

Image selection

From here, you can adjust your views to see the image more clearly. When you've found a comfortable image view and something you would like to annotate, click the annotate button and draw an annotation:


Annotation Details

From here, choose the appropriate annotation type (this will vary depending on the type of mission), and the severity of the matter. You can write any remedial actions that might need to be taken regarding the annotated object as well as any additional relevant comments.

Repeat this process to add additional annotations as needed to the image. When you've finished inspecting this image, click the checkbox next to Review in the bottom left corner:

Annotating other images

This image is now marked as fully reviewed. From here, go ahead and click another image, examine it, add any annotations necessary, and mark as reviewed.

You can also expand the workflow lineup (next to the reviewed button) to see how many images still need to be reviewed:

As you complete the process of annotating/reviewing your images, the image location points on the overview map to the left of the image view will update with the colors of your inspection severities:

A blue point represents an image with no annotations, and a green point represents the currently selected image in the image viewer.
