LightWare rangefinder installation

RangeFinder EXIF geotagging #

For some usage scenarios is important to have information about distance of photographed object from the camera. For example, when you need to measure length of cracks in the concrete dam. For this purpose we’ve implemented LightWare rangefinders compatibility and direct geotagging of the distance value to the EXIF during geotagging.

Installation #

STEP 1

Connect the LightWare range finder to the Entire port A/B/C as per this wiring. Power for the rangefinder will be provided by the Entire.

STEP 2

Open Entire’s GUI and configure port to LightWare. Port should go “online” in few seconds.

STEP 3

Once port is online, value measured at the moment of the capture will be stored in the EXIF as “SubjectDistance” during process of geotagging.

For this purpose range finder should be mounted close to the camera and aimed to the center of the image
