Add inventory item simplified

The asset inventory procedure “Add inventory simplified” allows the Orbit operator to create new objects in one of the available inventory themes.

This “Add inventory simplified” procedure is designed especially to accelerate feature extraction.
The “Add inventory item” procedure makes it possible to add and manage documents and snapshots of extracted objects.

Procedures > Asset Inventory > Add inventory simplified


Advantages of the Simplified procedure :

  • Keystrokes for feature production.
  • One single step to select theme, perform measurement and complete attributes.
  • Snapshots of Mapping Views that are opened at completing the object measurement are automatically added to the extracted object.
    All visible overlays at recording the snapshots can be included on the snapshot, see Preferences of Mobile Mapping.
