Yes. For optimal utilization of all Nira's capabilities, it is advised to export your files with georeferenced coordinates. If you intend to employ georeferenced coordinates, it is essential to identify a suitable coordinate system for your project. Here's a guide on how to do so:
• Choose a UTM Zone if you're not sure which coordinate system to use:
Simply drag one of your photos into the UTM Zone Identification webpage and make note of the EPSG code displayed. You'll need this code when configuring your export.
• If you already have a preferred coordinate system:
Be sure it's cartesian. To verify, consult the EPSG number on https://epsg.io.confirm the presence of "Coordinate System: Cartesian 2D CS". For instance, the page for EPSG:28992 indicates that is cartesian, whereas EPSG:4326 is not. If your preferred coordinate system is not cartesian, you should use a UTM Zone instead -- see the first bullet point above to learn how.
What advantages can I derive from utilizing georeferenced data?
- Callouts will display WGS 84 Latitude, longitude, and altitude coordinates within Callout window and PDF Report
- More measurement data
- Elevation Min, Max, and Difference
- Elevation profiles (coming soon)
- 3D and 2D (ortho) synchronization of measurements, callout, and CAD data (coming soon)
- Interactive Compass
- Map View
- Surrounding Map Tiles as background layer (coming soon)
- Day/Night Lighting system with shadow analysis (coming soon)
- Importing and/or exporting callout, annotation, measurement, and CAD data to or from other GIS applications (coming soon)
Now that you've chosen your coordinate system, it's time to export your data. For application specific export and upload guides, see the How do I export from... section of the Nira documentation.
