Annotate Images

Objective

The Annotate Images function enables the user to place cluster numbers, panel letters or plain text on top of images. The annotations are visible when the image is displayed in small size on many of the reporting functions. When a small image is clicked to open a new window displaying the image in jumbo size, cluster numbers and cluster numbers/panel letters form hyperlinks that will open new windows showing cluster or panel detail. The original images are not modified so corrections and adjustments may be made later.

Processing

The first page displays a list of surveys that you have the authority to update.

Hyperlinks include: Area (see ShowMaps).

To continue, select a survey by clicking on the Ref Nbr of a survey.

The second page will display a table of the Image Categories used for the chosen survey. You may select only one Image Category by clicking on an Image Category radio button. This function is usually performed on images that are site overviews or cluster overviews.

To continue, click the Submit button.

The third page will display all of the images for the selected image category in a small size.

Hyperlinks include: Image ID (see ImageCaptions), Prior, page number, Next (see PageNumbers).

To continue, click on the image to be annotated.

The fourth page displays the selected image in a large size. To add a new annotation, complete the desired text fields on the right of the page. Enter either:
  • Cluster number
  • Cluster number and panel letter
  • Text such as "Datum"

You may also change any of the default Text Color, Font Size or Background Color by clicking on the corresponding radio button. Click the image at the point where the annotation is to be displayed. The database will be updated and the image will be redisplayed to show the new annotation.

To delete or modify any of the annotations, scroll down to the table displaying the current annotations.

Hyperlinks include: Image ID, Cluster (see ElementCaptions).

Click the Delete box to delete an annotation. You may change the Cluster number, Panel letter or Text. Text color, Font Size or Background Color may be changed by clicking on the corresponding radio button.

To continue, clicking the Submit button. The database will be updated and the image will be redisplayed to show the changed annotation.
