Many tools in the Procore web application incorporate an attachment viewer to provide users with the ability to upload file attachments associated with an item or object. For example, your project team might upload photos for your deficiency list items or to record an incident that occurred using the Daily Log tool's Accident Log. To learn more about the attachment viewer, see the Answer below.
If an image attachment has a JPEG or PNG file format with Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates, users can click View in Google Maps when viewing the attachment on supported tools in the Procore web application.
The GPS coordinates are mapped by a third-party tool. Procore is not responsible for the accuracy or reliability of the mapping tool.
- If the digital image does NOT contain GPS coordinates, the 'View Google Maps' button is grayed out and unavailable.
- Most smartphone cameras have a built-in GPS function. When you take a photo, the camera automatically captures the GPS coordinates of the location where the image was taken. To learn how to adjust the GPS function on a camera, refer to the camera manufacturer's documentation.
